So, if I decide to use a 74-power symbol after all, is there any way I can design it making it automatically understand where it belongs, so I don't need to manually enter all those âU1, U2, U3â und so weiter?

Perhaps you want symbols with hidden power pins. They're not as flexible as putting in the power symbols explicitly, but they may be right for your application. In my applications, I often have multiple power nets, so it is essential to be explicit.

You mean like the default symbols with lines like the following?

Well, I think that would work best for what I'm doing. I think I will go that way, at least until I run into some kind of case where this does not workâ Maybe my symbols won't be interesting then for anybody else than me, but it doesn't hurt to share them anyway, I guess. I could include some kind of warning, I guess.
Kind regards
