Nice new library editor, for this 7.3 version... The overall view and the 'duplicate' function would be a is a great idea... at least if it was working !
First thing I tried, I open a library, tried to duplicate a device, and all I get is this error :
'can't open 'My_libraryname.lbr''
No such file or directory
The reason is quite simple: Eagle assume that the opened library is stored in one of the path defined in the Libraries directories option, but don't look into sub directories... GRrrrrrrrrr
This is a bug: when you edit a file (it could be a anything: a text document, a video, a 3D model etc....) you use the name and the path of the the file you are editing ! you don't assume the location of the file !!!!!
There are 2 workarounds :
- You put all your library in the same directory, without any sub-directory but you have to like messy organisation....
- Or each time you plan to use that new 'duplicate' functionality, first you move the Lbr at the top of your library directory, you edit the library, then you move back the lbr file where it belong (and do the same for the .l#1, .L#2 files !!!).
