Place component from component library in PCB Layout. You are placing pattern from pattern library, but information about connections between pins is stored in component library.

Looks like this is still an issue in Diptrace 2.4.02. I think I found a solution though. First day using Diptrace so I might be wrong. I'm not completely clear under what conditions libraries are updated yet.

Problem:
I'm creating an edge launch SMA component with 2 ground pins on bottom and 2 ground pins on top that overlap. Can't connect all grounds together inside Component editor.

Workaround:
1) Create pattern with overlapping pads.
2) Offset bottom pads so that all are visible without overlapping. Save.
3) Now can attach all pads correctly in Component Editor. Save.
4) Edit pattern, moving pads back into correct overlapped positions. Save.
5) Go back into Component Editor. Pattern will not be changed. Re-select the EXACT SAME PATTERN NAME. The pin and pad connections will stay but the pad placements will update. Save.
