EAGLE Version 6 – Create a project ans start drawing the
schematic

In this issue of our EAGLE series we want to create our first project and start
drawing a schematic. Expand the „Projects“ branch of the tree view in the
EAGLE Control Panel. Some example projects are available there. The yellow
icons represent simple directories, the red colored icons are so-called project
folders.
Click onto the Projects entry with the right mouse button now. The context
menu opens and shows the entry „New Project“. Type in a project name of

your own and confirm with the Enter key.

Now EAGLE creates a new folder with the project's name. It already contains a
file named eagle.epf which will store all the settings you will make while
working with the project. Right of the project folder's name there you will
notice a green marker that indicates the project as active. You may want to add
a description for the project. Therefore do a right-click onto the project folder
entry and select Edit Description.
Enter your descriptive text in the bottom part of the window. The part above
shows a preview of it. It is allowed to use HTML tags for formatting the text. It
is also possible to add links to images or web locations, as shown in the image.
The supported HTML tags are described in the EAGLE help function (Help
menu, General help, Search for: HTML).

Next step is to create a new schematic. Therefore do a right mouse click onto
the project entry in the treeview and select New.../Schematic. The Schematic
Editor window appears. Our first action will be to place a drawing frame, which
can be found in Frames.lbr. Use the ADD icon in order to place components or
frames in the schematic. The ADD icon can be found on the left side in the icon
toolbar.

Click onto the icon and a window with all the libraries available opens. Scroll
down the list and look for frames. Expand the frames entry and choose one of
the frames. After OK the frame can be placed in the schematic. Fix it with a
mouse click at the coordinate’s origin. Now go on and try adding further parts.
Rcl.lbr, for example, contains resistors, capacitors and inductors. Try out the
search function as well. Next time I will tell you more about drawing the
schematic.
