gate swapping transformer windings.

I'm using PADS 9.2 and DxDesigner.


I have a common-mode choke-a four terminal device; for the purposes of discussion, think of it as a transformer.  I want to be a able to swap the two input pins with the two output pins; in other words, I want to be able to swap the input winding with the output winding and back-annotate that from Layout to DxDesigner.  Now, I suppose I could set the the two windings as two gates of a heterogeneous part.  But I don't want to;  the windings are not really individual gates-one won't work without the other.  Further, if I have multiple devices, Layout could conceiveably swap windings in different transformers, and that's just plain wrong.


Soooo, any idea how to handle this?
