Questions relating to designing PCBs
By ninja2
I'm teaching myself Eagle using 7.6.0 and "Make your own PCBs with EAGLE" by Simon Monk, but I'm stuck on page 71.

Following the text I add a complex component (like HD44780 or atmega32u2) to my schematic and try to rotate but it does nothing except beeping at me. I can add and rotate a simple component like a resistor no problem.

What am I missing?

EDIT: to answer my own question: I found if I put the mouse on the *tiny* little centering mark for the complex component it rotates as expected. So a dumb question from a newbie maybe, but it would be nice if Simon mentioned this in his book :(
