I have recently started using Eagle. I am trying to place 0805
components and am having a problem because the pads in the standard
library are off of the grid (50 mil). If I place the component
horizontally and then try to route a trace from the side of the
component, the trace does not exit the center of the pad but instead the
trace is aligned to the grid and is offset from the center of the pad.
The only way I can get it to work is to use a very fine grid.
However, if the component is rotated vertically a trace exits from the
center of the pad even if the pad is off grid.
