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

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
