    Accidentally removed a component from Eagle

    jomac_asia

      Im new to Eagle and still finding my feet. I want to create a PCB that uses a 100 pin TQFP device. I went to edit/add and searched for the device. I found it, but accidentally pressed DROP instead of OK, now its no longer there, how do I replace it? I even tried re-installing Eagle but its still not visible.

       

      Many thanks.

          For a library to be available via the add command (selectable) you need to

          make it avaible with the USE it.

          DROP unfortunatley means un-USE

          To get all your libraries back there are a number of ways

           

          Enter enter into the command line USE *

          That will make all libraries on your library paths available. Can take a

          while on a slow machine.

           

          Enter enter into the command line USE

          and choose the library to open

           

          You could look in the Control Panel, find the library of interest and click

          the Grey dot beside it  and make it Green

           

          See USE in the help for more info
