I've been working my way through all the example projects I found on the
Cadsoft site, wow... They are useful.
Because I want to develop good habits from the start and I'm trying very
hard to unlearn some very awkward techniques I bring from the "other"
commercial software I was using, so I really appreciate any advice you can
I want to show off PCB components on the schematic, like a panel mounted
pot, or switch, or jack because I want them to be included in the bill of
So, what is the preferred method to do this? I see most just leave them off
the schematic and use a connector or pads for the off board stuff.
In the "other" software, I created some panel components that just had pads
for the PCB package. It worked OK.
Are there already some "off board" components like this? I've tried every
keyword I could think of to search the libraries, but no luck yet.
Thanks for you patience with a new user.
