scaling parts during or after schematic placement

#1 Post by Fenichel » 18 Mar 2012, 17:46

Is there a way to scale the schematic image of a part? The size at which the part's schematic library icon is drawn is of course arbitrary, and sometimes a schematic with only a few parts on it is easier to read if one or more of the parts is just drawn larger. Being able to enlarge some parts would be especially valuable when a schematic will be used in printed form, without convenient means of zooming.

To keep the pins lined up with the grid, scaling would need to be limited to integral multiples of the drawn-at scale, but with that limitation it might be easy to implement.

It is not possible to scale a component in Schematic. We will consider this option, but it won't be implemented in near future.

Ten years later, I could use it too. I need to shrink a part or redraw it.
