    Would anyone be able to please tell me where I might find an Eagle symbol for a 60 mm square common anode LED matrix display like this

    The only Eagle forums that I can find do not seem very active and also I realise that you can make your own but as this stage I am flat out trying to learn to use this CAD package as it is Thanks Pedro.

    I was just planning to get into Eagle CAD, you say their forums are not very active?
    They never answered you?

    Maybe the LED matrix is a bit uncommon.

    The two I found do not seem very active but maybe I am being impatient :) I am heavily involved in Arduino and these matrices are used a lot there but maybe people make there own symbols.

    As with all layout software, you will come to a point where you must make a footprint/component. Might as well learn how to do that now... eventually, it very well may be faster than looking online for one...

    Thanks I did get one on the Arduino forum but I think generally you are right. Thanks for the advice :)
