I am a noob to Pads, but experienced with Orcad and PCad.
In Layout, if I want to manually add a footprint, it looks like I must use "add component" on the ECO Toolbar. Is that right?
When I do that, and I point to one of my libraries (a library that I created, which contains ONLY footprints), no components show up. Am I to assume that the library must have a part definition in it? Even though I only want to place the footprint? that doesn't make sense to me, what am I missing?
If that is the case, is there some way to add a footprint to a layout manually, from a library that contains ONLY footprints?
Thanks in advance!
