CadSoft Eagle - PCB Layout Software - Schematics - Add tool, library, and the move tool
Once you click on the add tool within the schematic editor, a full list of the libraries will be shown in a dialog box. If nothing appears, or if a library is missing, go to the main window and right click the main libraries and select use all, or go to the specific library you want to use and right click on that library and click use.
There is a very broad variety of parts in the library. You will need to drill down to the part you need. You can also use the search.
Once you pick on a part, it will sow the part on the screen and you will need to place the part somewhere on the screen. It will allow you to place this part to many places if you wish. Press escape to stop placing the part, or click on the move tool.
The library dialog box will appear again is the escape key was pressed. If you don't need another part, just click on cancel.
Some parts will allow you to move specific sub portions of the part.
to move many parts at once, you will need to use the group tool. You can draw a rectangle around the parts, or click a polygon around the parts to be more precise in the selecting. Then you need to right click and select move group. If move group is not an option, you will need to click on move, then escape and right click again and the move group will be available.
