Saving PCB footprint / component

**Feature Request** Add an option to save the currently selected component / footprint in the PCB editor as a favourite or user-specific component. How would you like the feature to work? I often modify the components in the PCB editor to change hole diameters and pad sizes. And since those are reset every time changes are imported, I need to do it all from beginning. If I can save a modified part footprint directly from the PCB editor and use it, this can be avoided. Why is this feature important to you? Very much, since a lot of footprints have too small holes or too large pads.

This is counter to the recommended workflow of EasyEDA. If you start off by drawing a schematic and assigning the appropriate package to each symbol in the Schematic Editor (including any holes such as mounting holes etc.) then when you first do **Convert Project to PCB...**, those footprints will be pulled into the newly created PCB from the library. If you find that you need to modify a footprint then search for the original from the library, clone it, edit it (and add or edit the description) then save it with a unique name. Next, assign this new package to all the symbols in the Schematic that called up the original version and then do **Update PCB...** from the Schematic Editor or **Import Changes...** in the PCB Editor. * All the relevant packages in the PCB will then be replaced by the new ones. Job done.
