• Eagle v7.2 Export Libraries bugs?

    I think I've run into a bug in 7.2.0 Standard that defeats the Export Libraries feature much of the time. The main symptom is that during the export process a dialog pops up with "[Somefile.scr], Line [n] The Standard edition of EAGLE can't perform the…

    From a current project Version 7.2.0, Eagle Hobbyist.

  • macos display bug

    Often (but not every time) when placing a part from a library, the display stops showing the part outline being dragged.  Blindly clicking to drop causes the part to magically appear (usually in the wrong place...), and (sometimes) changing the zoom level…

  • Can't edit board



    After creating my PCB and routing some wires, I changed some connections in the schematic and added a few more parts. When I go editing my board, it automatically places all new parts at the axes origin (one on top of the other) but when I try to…

  • Polygon Pour/Fill causes DRC Spacing Errors

    My board fab house (Advanced Circuits in USA) has a requirement that copper regions must be spaced apart by at least 5 mils, even when the copper sections are of the same signal.   Eagle's polygon pour (fill) seems to violate this requirement regardless…

  • Eagle 6.5 on Debian 7.4, freezes on 'Esc' and on tool switch.

    Hi, new-user,

    1. Options->Directories->Projects is empty and that causes screw-ups when you try to create a 'New Project' - it silently refuses to add a new project.

    2. After I 'Add' a part from the library, when I hit 'Esc'…

  • Eagle v6.3 DRC doesn't detect clearance error between two polygons of same rank

    A simple example is attached.  Basically it notices if the two polygons overlap, but not if they just touch or the clearance is less than the default 8mils that the DRC specifies.

  • Eagle 6.0.0 polygon filling and edge deletion problem



    Sorry - found another problem with 6.0.0 that wasn't there in 5.x.


    Basically, if you delete an edge rats-nested filled polygon, then the polygon doesn't visually update like it did in 5.11.0. Undo also suffers from problems too.
