Bug Description

# Current Behaviour

footprint editor -> click on pad -> "Create Array..."

Assume we have a single pad with number 1.

When we create an array (either with "use first free value" or "from start number" with start 1) The pad is removed and a pad with number 2 is at the position. In Fact, it should NOT increment the start value when placing the first pad.

* When you use first free value it would be assumed that the current pad is not replaced with n+1.
* When you select a start number, a user should expect that the first pad has this number, not n+1. In case of alphabet numbering a user cannot create arrays starting with "A" at the moment due to this behaviour!

# Expected Behaviour

* In case of selected start number, the selected number is used for the first pad, not the increment of it
* In case of use first free number mind the current pad.
