I need some help with creating an new part. I have made multiple parts not so long ago, but for some reason I do not get the pins listed anymore in the connect tab for the device. The last stage to connect the pins to the pad numbers. My pin list stays empty. Not sure what I do wrong.
I thought my problem was related to the symbol itself, so copied an excisting one from the library. but that does not help.
It shows the padnumbers in the device tab, though.
Any clue what I am dooing wrong?
Hope you can help.

I smashed a few components and deleted their names, now I need the names back. The names of the components are still the same, I just want to see them again. Is this possible?
**SOLVED** The library component didn't have name and value fields to begin with! Easy fix in the library - all is well.
I have finished one of my ulps, it works fine, but there is a little problem. There are V shaped holes on the picture. I know these are just coordinate issues, but i couldn't resolve them.
I can put comments into the ulp, if you want.
Altho an experience mechanical designer I am a newby to Eagle.
I need to place and verify the mechanical aspects of a design for a client that is responsible for the electrical performance of the product. I just have to make it fit in the overall design.
What is best method to represent the size, vertical skyline and mounting hole positions of a board for use by a mechanical Cad system (eg Solidworks.
what is the current EAGLE version you are trying to use as Freemium? Is it the current beta?
If yes, please send me a private email with the email adress you used for registering the Freemium.
I could reset the license for you then.... I suppose you registered for 5.11 or earlier and now you
try the beta.
I often perform the same checks in my work. If I have a panel layout I will transcribe dimensions of controls, switches, cutouts, mounting holes, etc to a blank board, then determine the maximum size that will fit behind the panel when mounted and develop the PCB from there. If I have the PCB, I will draw a layer in my CAD program for the board outline and any controls, cutouts, mounting holes or switches that will mate with the panel, as they are already fixed, and align everything to the panel. The hardest part is to make sure that all the switches, knobs, connectors and screws coexist with the final graphic. It is often a balancing act to get everything to fit and still look nice.
Hope this helps.
