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?
Response from EMA:
When you set your psm and pad that did you add it to the favorites in the Setup
User Preferences? If you did that would explain it. There is a bug and adding
the psm and pad path to the favorites causes them to reset.
And Yes you have to add every folder. You cannot add the
highest level. The tool will not recursively search the sub folders.
I have the paths set as favorites............ figures.
PS: I think I recall reading this in another post, sorry if I'm duplicating subjects.
