@Craig We did actually remove our existing Octopart import functionality since it didn’t fit with a more streamlined workflow we were aiming for. We do have some exciting new part creation features waiting in the wings which re-introduces Octopart integration, which we’ll be announcing this summer.
In the meantime, anyone on Live Support would be more than happy to associate an Octopart number with any part to facilitate your BOM.
@aShireDuke “Forking” a component is really using that component’s shapes and pin-names as a template for another component. We don’t bring along the component’s other electrical attributes, since they’re unlikely to apply to a completely different component. If you could describe a bit more about what you’re trying to accomplish, we might be able to point you to the best workflow.
