How to make the pads of a resistor or other non polarized component swappable in the 2DPCB environement

This is probably a dumb question, but I was wondering why rotating a resistor 180 degree in the 2DPCB environment made the airwires connected to said resistor cross instead of switching the pads they are connected to to try to reach the closest net. Afteral, it doesn't matter which way a resistor is connected considering it isn't polarized. From what I could understand, setting the symbol's pins swaplevels to, let's say, 1  they would be swappable in the designing but that doesn't look like it's doing anything.

To clarify, I am trying to create a resistor in my library who's pads would be swappable so that they connect to the closest component available.

Thanks for the help.

Hello @1900745KYKTT,

 

You can verify that the pins are swappable by turning on the pins layer. Confirm that pins are set to 1 for the swaplevel. Keep in mind the pin swapping is not automatic. You have to do it manually using the pinswap command.

 

Before you route just use pinswap and change the pins then continue routing.

 

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
