I can't help you. I don't have CircuitMaker 2000; only the Student version, and you can't add/change components to the library with the Student edition.

I don't know of anyone on here that uses CircuitMaker 2000. It is obsolete, and not supported by the software house that wrote it.

There ARE a couple of tutorials still available.
Circuitmaker link: http://www.circuitmaker.com/pdfs/cm_usermanual.pdf
Traxmaker link: http://www.circuitmaker.com/pdfs/tm_usermanual.pdf

As I said before, I suggest that you look at downloading Cadsoft Eagle; available here:
http://www.cadsoftusa.com/

You can use it as freeware indefinitely; the freeware version has a few limitations like only 2 layers, and board size is limited to 3"x4".

There is lots of support for Cadsoft Eagle, lots of tutorials, lots of component libraries. About the only thing you won't be able to do with Cadsoft Eagle freeware is to run a PSpice simulation.

Here is an easy tutorial for Cadsoft Eagle on Sparkfun: http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/tutorial_info.php?tutorials_id=108

There are tutorials on Cadsoft's site, and various other places around the web.

If you want to keep trying with Circuitmaker 2000, be our guest. But you won't likely get much help here, as few have it.
