See also this related thread : Pin spacing does not work in breadboard view (not in the bugs category):
Steps to reproduce:
1 Goto Breadboard view.
2. Pick a part that supports pin spacing. I chose a screw terminal for this example.
3. Adjust the Pin spacing from the standard 5.0
What I would have expected:
The pin spacing is adjusted visibly and functionally, at least for factors of 2.54 mm.
What really happened:
The pin spacing parameter is adjusted, but the part stays visibly and functionally the same.
0.9.2 (from tar.bz2 archive)
Operating system: Ubuntu 14.04 64 bits
The pin spacing on the generic IC part can be adjusted, but only if you edit a pin description afterwards.
This leads me to believe that the act of adjusting the pin spacing does not trigger a redraw of that part.
This might be because the spacings which are not a factor of the normal bread/strip/perfboard spacing of 2.54 mm would be problematic in breadboard view.
Eventually I have created a custom part as a workaround.
I hope this will be fixed in the next release.
Thanks in advance for fixing this bug.
