B. how do you maintain the wire number? unfortunately it is a requirement.
You can try the attached "circuit"... it is a combo
of a new plug and a new jack symbol tied together with a zero length or near
zero length line segment. Each symbol can carry and report its own
part number. The key is that the right hand wire connection point attribute of
the left-hand symbol and the left hand wire connection attribute of the
right-hand symbol lay on top of each other with a zero length line connecting
them. This keeps the wire number from changing from the left side of the plug
to the right side of the jack. You'll need to use the INS CIRCUIT cmd to pop
this combo in, make sure you check the "Move LINES to wire layers" toggle.
Another thing you can do is create a "JUMPERS" wire layer and put this
zero-length segment on this layer. Then this jumper will not show up in the
various From/To reports.
You'll need to create reverse and vertical versions
of these combo circuits to cover all your bases and then, once they look good,
add them to some buttons on your INS COMP icon menu to make it a snap to pick
and pop them in.
