Copying schematic and getting boards copied too?

Post by ehansen2580 » Sat Feb 25, 2017 7:50 pm

Hi,

New to Eagle so I may be missing something really simple. I want to copy a schematic from another project and can successfully copy the parts and connections from one schematic to another without an issue. However, when I go to the board view to do the layout I end up with multiple boards defined, one from each of the schematics I copied. It looks like the circuit I copy somehow has the board size associated with it and copies that as well. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Am I explaining it clearly enough?

Can't you use windows explorer, copy and paste the schematic and rename it as a new file.

That will allow you to make a new pcb from the other project.
