A small problem for me, but perhaps a big opportunity for Fritzing in the ever-growing SMT/SMD world—connectable PCB pads. I often have SMD parts for which no Fritzing part is currently available, but I could create one on-the-fly with the sizeable pads in PCB view, except they have no connections and do not show in the schematic view. If the pads could be circuit-connectable, then any part or device footprint could be created as-needed, without every user having to learn to modify existing parts or create new ones. With dozens of new or unique SMD footprints coming out weekly, a solution is necessary to allow Fritzing to be useful and flexible with that growth.
I am currently having to add a test point on-top of pads to make them appear in the schematic (e.g., antenna connection), but that’s clumsy and messy. Is there a simple option already available, or can schematic-connectable versions of the PCB pads be developed?
