I know it is some where, but could someone point out where I could find the information on the meanings of the silkscreen patterns produced by "PCB Libraries". I think it was following a standard.

I am attempting to understand the polarity of the capacitor standard.

I used from the library of "PCB Libraries", "CAPMP6032X280 Capacitor, Polarized, Molded Body;6.00 mm L X 3.20 mm W X 2.80 mm H body" for SMD Parts.

However, looking at the part I created I am not sure which is positive or Neg.

Is the slanted part on the left side showing Neg. or Pos?

Thank You

The Molded Body Polarized Capacitor has the Positive end on Pin 1. 

Use the "Drafting Outline" feature to add your personal polarity marking. 

These are your options:

You can pick the shape, size, location, rotation and filled or unfilled polygons. 

You also pick the layer: Legend Top/Bottom or Assembly Top/Bottom
