Hello, I have just started using Eagle Version 5.12.0 for Linux light and also have it installed on my XP-PRO laptop.
I have watched a few on line videos and noticed that in one tutorial the wire tool was used to make connections
and another tutorial used the net tool. So, which should I use and what are the issues? I thought I read something about
the wire tool did not make actual connections(?).
Also, while I have created a simple schematic and experimented with using the board layout, I noticed that when using
a part from the library (7805 regulator in this case) that the outline of the part is displayed. I am wondering if there is some
option to turn that off? It sort of looks like it is silk screen? What I wanted was to just display the mounting holes for the
thru hole part on the board layout. It will be awhile before I am ready to actually attempt a board.
Thanks in advance.
