AlfBaz:
I guess it would also depend on the software package you are using, some would lend themselves to greater flexibility.

As a hobbyist with no industry experience I find there are way to many ways of doing things and consequently chop and change methods from project to project, high time I documented my workflow and some self imposed standards

In my experience it's an emotive subject.

It's a shame, it would be nice to see what others are doing or at least examples of procedure in place at professional houses.

Cross probing can help if you have access to the schematic/pcb file and the cad software it was designed in, but I agree, it's not optimal. This method would certainly make choosing a symbol layout a lot easier

I mean what clown would scatter VDD and GND pins all around the chip instead of keeping them next to each other where they are easy to connect? Don't know why they need more than one of each anyway.

I've read other posts by you Rufus, you are not a chump, so you must be taking the piss here  ;)
