you dont need the on/off button to do on off. just use a regular button as 2-state!

Any surface GO will work on the modular module surface. You can even do pages.

It's likely you'll encounter problems with anything (combolists for example) which goes outwith the boundaries of the module. Also take care not to cover up the pads with surface groups.

I had the same thought and I made the Module surface very big - like filling the screen. The normal button shows, the on-off not. (later I found the reason: you have to swap view ID)
It doesn't really matter, because the normal button works just fine.

what is so annoying is that in move mode if you move your module all your i/o goes out of alignment, so frustrating :0

still can't get new controls to show on the surface. i do it like you describe here but as soon as i move a control into the ControlChild folder, the control disappears.

Check if the controls have circuit or surface view ids. In surface screen, only controls with a surface ID are visible.(right click element in project tree/tool/swap view ID circuit->surface or the other way)

Yes, extremly annoying. So move only in surface mode.
