connecting 2 or more pads to 1 pin.

for Version 1.4

I am making my own library for components.
I need to connect 2 (or more) pads in the pattern to 1 pin in the schematic.
For example a Triac in SOT-223 package has the com connected to 2 pins.
How can this be done?

Thanks for your help.

This cannot be done in version 1.4, but is able to do in ver.2.1.

Open "Attached pattern" window in Component editor and choose a pattern for the component. You will see blue lines that connect component's pins with pads. Using mouse, you can add extra connections from unconnected pads to already connected ones.
