Hi,

is there a convenient way to name the mating card footprint of a card edge connector?

The connector itself would be named <Mfg>_<Mfg Partnumer>, of course.
But how to name the footprint of the mating card, given that both names can't be identical?

Regards

We're having the same problems with this issue on POD. 

Add the word "Mate" to the footprint name and Physical and Logical Descriptions.
