As you've probably already heard, the Library Expert boasts preference settings that are unparalleled, so powerful we had to give them a name! But we're not done - we're developing the CAD LEAP technology (Libraries Enhanced with Advanced Preferences) even further, and need your feedback on how we can best tweak it for your use!

Please take a few minutes to complete this Preferences Survey:

Regarding using English or Metric units.  If it is obvious to me that the part was designed using mils or mm then my preference is to create my footprint in the units that are native to the designed part.

I do this to avoid round off errors that can accumulate when using units that are not native to designed part.

It's not as simple as either just imperial or metric.

Schematic symbols have not changed for many years so an existing symbol library developed with a 100th/200th pitch is still good and allow for easy and consistent connections. The schematic is perfectly fine using imperial dimensions.

For the PCB though, there is a mix of components in imperial and metric - imperial components have not changed size, just the dimensions in the datasheet converted to mm.

So it's not a simple question as the survey asks, it should separate both sides of the process.

Hello Nick! If you are talking about PCB components like PCB Repair/ Rework, BGA reballing or even IPC Training then I can refer you one reference site i.e http://bit.ly/2axf59b which may help you. Hope this link gives you good info.

Any way to do the survey outside of google docs. Our IT doesn't want play with anything that can store or transmit data to any internet services.
