I am trying to create different package of the same component(grid size), with same pins. Thought that package variant is what I need. However it looks like I can't have same package with different variant names. Those are referring to the same package. If I change size of one variant, another is also changed. Now I am confused about variant.
one more attempt to explain question. As far as I understood variant is applicable for each unique package. So I created two identical packages, then gave unique variants to each.
My expectation was that variant will make my package unique and I could have different size of part in each package variant. But it looks like variant is just label and package itself should be unique. In other words if I want to create two packages with little difference of the same device, then I have to create two different packages. I really don't see the use of variant, at least within my subject.
