I’m using EAGLE for my stuff because…it is largely used and quite powerful. However, it is a nightmare to work with ! Some things don’t make any sense. One exemple, I want a CD4053…classic CMOS isn’t it ? so I put “cd4053” in the search bar, nothing ?! “4053” doesn’t work either… but If I put multiplexer, voila here it comes…Obviously if you pur “4053D” it appears. It is very annoying ! It does the same for huge quantity of things even the simplest “LED” I know it’s not biggy but It actually is considering the enormous length of the libraries included. It seems pretty logical to include such generic term to the components for easy acess, doesn’t it ?
I shouldn’t even talk about the creation of new parts, you have to make so many copy/paste and edit 3 files at the same time…I really should give a try to Kicad !
