Re: [kicad-eeschema] Vertical pins with horizontal texts



Once the new schematic and symbol library file formats are complete, you
will be able orient pin number and name positions freely.  This is
planned for version 6 which is currently under development so no changes
will be made to the existing file format to support this.  Thank you for
offering to help but this already is planned.
