Specify different connectors on user-defined part

Question asked by Wesley Ramm on Dec 6, 2018

Hello,

I'm able to successfully create a user defined part, but for instance I have a single terminal block which has  "control" and "feedback"  D-SUB connectors for multiple axes.

So I have Axis 1 Control, Axis 1 Feedback, Axis 2 Control, Axis 2 Feedback, etc.

When I do the terminal "marking" in the "circuits" wizard, is there a good way to name these different connectors? 

Initially I've adopted the following convention for the "marking", but it is a bit cumbersome.  Is there a better way?

Ax1CtrlAO+

Ax1CtrlAO-

Ax1FBEncA+

Ax1FBEncA-

etc.

Is there a better way to do the naming, or is there a way to specify sub-connectors on a device? 

I'm happy to RTFM if someone can point me to an article, etc, but none of the tutorials or guides I have seen have mentioned this particular issue.

Thanks!

Wes
