European component symbols

#1 Post by mrbyte » 28 Dec 2012, 15:07

Hi,

Really enjoying using DipTrace. I think it is excellent, but all the resistor symbols in the discrete library are American style. How can I change these to European symbols?

Also, there are a lot of different types of resistors, how do I know what size the footprint is of the one I have chosen (through-hole)?

Thanks! :mrgreen:

I made my own library of european symbols. Its quite easy to do with the Diptrace component editor. Give it a try.

Through hole resistor sizes are in the name. ie. RES400 = 400mil hole centres on the pcb.

Regards
John

We added library with European symbols in version 2.3. It was called "EuroSym".

Thanks for clearing up the size issue, I see what you mean now :)

I suppose I can just clone the discrete library and change the symbols to European style from the library EuroSym. It would be nice if the EuroSym library had all the components already done like it is already with American style symbols (with different footprint patterns for sizes) though, not a huge issue but it would be nice. The previous schematic software I used that had two libraries that had the same components but with different style symbols.

Thanks again

I tried the 4.0,0,2 version and no found European symbols anywhere
Where is this library so we can add it to the diptrace

Look for the component library named "Objects Symbols EIC" near the end of the libraries list.
