Although we do not fully support DipTrace yet, our Eagle *.lbr files can be used to import the symbol and footprint to DipTrace. Below are the instructions.

To import the symbol:

  1. Open Schematics, click Tools > Component Editor...
  2. In the Component Editor, click Library > Import > Eagle XML (*.lbr)...
  3. Browse the downloaded *.lbr file and click Open.
  4. Choose the Library Group where you want to save the part and click OK.
  5. Click Library > Save As...
  6. Save the *.eli file anywhere.

    **NOTE: Do not save it in the Diptrace Standard Library path. (C:\Program Files\DipTrace\Lib) DipTrace will not allow you to edit in that folder.
     
  7. You can now use the symbol in your Schematic

To import the footprint:

  1. Open PCB Layout, click Tools > Pattern Editor...
  2. In the Pattern Editor, click Library > Import > Eagle XML (*.lbr)...
  3. Browse the downloaded *.lbr file and click Open.
  4. Choose the Library Group where you want to save the part and click OK.
  5. Click Library > Save As...
  6. Save the *.eli file anywhere.

    **NOTE: Do not save it in the Diptrace Standard Library path. (C:\Program Files\DipTrace\Lib) DipTrace will not allow you to edit in that folder.
     
  7. You can now use the footprint in your PCB.
