      Hi Bruce,

      In the library manager, select the component tab (or PCB Symbols) and click on the 'preview' check box to see the component footprints.

      Thanks for the reply, The library manager shows "library contents: 0" checking the preview box shows nothing (black window).

      The free PCB Footprint Expert Lite auto-generates high quality footprints directly from component dimensions using IPC-7351 rules or you can create your own rules or use the mfr. recommended solder pattern. Download here - www.pcblibraries.com
