    Is anyone here and an avid user of multisim/ultiboard and knows what the footprints are?

    I'm trying to design a small 555 timer board that will plug into a breadboard, but the footprints in ultiboard for some components are simply wrong and I'm not sure which to use.

    The pot for instance, I want to use a P160 series pot but I have no idea what foot print I would use for that.

    I also want to use a push button switch like the one i=on the board in this image, but have no idea what type of switch it is or what footprint to use.

    Is there anyone that can help me with this? I haven't really designed the boards before.
