MCU In Proteus - Why are some pins missing?

    I'm thinking of buying Proteus suite 8, but have seen some video tutorials on youtube which have me baffled where micro-controllers are concerned.

    When, say a PIC mcu is dropped onto the schematic, some pins such as VCC are missing. If I add, say a 7805 to my circuit, there's nowhere to connect it. Whilst this seems to be unncessary for simulation, how does this work when you send the schematic to pcb layout, as the 7805 would have no connections?

    I know I'm probably being dim, but I could have thought that any components intended to be on the PCB would need to be in the schematic and connected?

    Hope someone can shed some light for me!
