Can someone tell me an example use-case for a single schematic symbol
corresponding to multiple board entities within a single project?
Here is another example use case.
I drew up the schematic for an LED sign panel. It has 10 8x8 LED blocks in
two rows of 5 blocks. Each column pair of LED blocks has the same wiring
with only the component references being different. I could have used a
single schematic file showing the wiring 5 column pairs of LEDs. I didn't
actually do that because I either didn't know the feature existed or didn't
know how to make use of that feature at the time.
