So I'm finishing up my design and I exported the BOM and I'm going through and pricing things when I noticed something... it isn't breaking down by Pattern!!! It happily lists R1, R2, R3, R24 (for example) on the same line because they have the same "name" (resistor) and "value" (100K) and then in the pattern column, it LIES and says "RES_0402", when in fact one of them is 0402 and the others are 0603, or whatever.

If it is going to be grouping (which it should) then OBVIOUSLY it needs to be grouped by pattern too! The whole point of a BOM is for purchasing, and if it causes you to purchase the wrong components... that sucks.

I'm sure I'm using this in a way not intended by the designers, so please enlighten me.
