Component: Schematic pin without pad

Hi, I'm creating a new component and I need to have pin in the schematic symbol not connected to any pad of PCB symbol. it's possible to do it? since the software does not allow me  to save the component due to this missing assignment.

Thanks

Alex

The simplest way to understand the requirements is to download an example from PPL our online library available from SamacSys. Attached is an image of a DIL relay, a classic example of a component with missing pins in the footprint.
Explore this in the Library Editor and you will see the pin number and pad number naming requirements which must be sequential.
The component Pin number represents the actual component pin number.

Have you checked the component does not already exist in our online library?
If it does not you can request it to be built.
