So, I redo all my libraries to have pins A and K, both in the schematic and footprint.  Then, there is no confusion.


Not really, Cathode is spelled with C therefore your libraries shall maintain A & C as default.

The traditional label for cathode pins is K, not C. Reference: https://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/65981/why-is-the-symbol-for-cathode-a-k

Oh snap! I did not know this.  ;)
