I find the one big footprint library very cumbersome. Has anyone broken theirs down into sub categories, ie; resistors, capacitors, ic's, etc..... If so are there any special constraints for the directory structure?
Do the padstacks need to be resident in the footprint library directory, or can I have a padstacks directory seperate from the footprints?
I would think I'd have to do something with the paths in order to make Editor locate the new sub directories, right?
Exactly what I had in mind to do. Thanksfor the help. Looks like I'll be spending tomorrow converting old libs and setting up new directories / paths and the like.
I just received a PO for a job I quoted a while back and it requires using 16.5 so I am diving into the deep end........ and hoping to surface............
