Thank you! That was my intent behind it.

I'll think about it. I'm currently in a little trouble with the select + drag code, because it creates unwanted connections when dragging over existing parts. I move the parts and lines to drag to a temporary sheet now, which makes it behave nice, but I'm not done with it yet.

To create a new part in the middle of a lib you use the insert key "Insert". Then you can alter width and height and the "a"llocate key creates an empty entry.

Alternatively you can insert an empty space and "c"opy a part by its number. Only the graphics is copied, not the pins.

For now I'll maintain the parts.xml. If you have additions, you could just mail them to me or even attach to a thread. I can append them to the main file.

I'm also thinking about setting up a CVS pserver on my box to make it easier to update the files for you.

An import function should be easy enough to implement.

I'll do the 555 and 566 soon, or if you want to share your's, I'll take that.
