It would be super-cool if you could place a component and then make it... not a component.
For block diagrams, or for showing off-board stuff, for example.
Is there a way to place a component, and then "explode" it so it turns into its native drawing elements, and it's NOT a component any more?
I've done it manually with ASCII-out and ASCII-in. It is a bit tedious though because the formats for a part-symbol and a lines-symbol don't match exactly. ASCII out one of each type and compare them and you'll see what it takes.
