EAGLE how to move components between sheets without rerouting?

    Hi everyone!

    I have spent too much time trying to figure out how to move components
    between
    sheets in the schematic, without ripping up the previously made routes
    in the
    correspondant board.

    Is it possible?

    Cheers...

    Franco.

    I seem to remember that just moving parts to another sheet
    was a pain in the ass...

    I think you can do what you want if you close the routing view,
    move the parts (being sure to keep the U? and R? assignments)
    and then open the routing view and check things to make sure
    the views are consistent.

    [Be sure to save a copy first. It may take a few tries to
    get it right.]

    Try asking over in eagle.support.eng or eagle.userchat.eng at

    Ok, thanks for the answers. I am gonna try the trick Hal pruposed. It
    sounds logical.

    Best Regards...

    Try keeping everything in one sheet then. Eagle is a big pain in the
    butt. Have you tried PCB123 schematic/layout software. Looks like an
    eagle clone with no # of layer restrictions and with a better gui,
    plus you order the board directly from the software, no gerber file
    hassles...

    Many will say that's NOT a "plus" for an ECAD package.
    no gerber file capability so that the app is not lock-in-ware.
    There. Fixed it for you.

    The company
    http://www.google.com/search?q=site:pcb123.com+converts-*-*-to-*-Gerber
    appears to be a pack of liars
    http://www.google.com/search?q=site:pcb123.com+does.not.have.the.ability.to.generate.gerber
    who can't even construct a standards-compliant Web page

    Have you tried it yet? I downloaded and installed it yesterday and it
    looks OK doesn't have an extensive library yet, but the footprint
    editor looks easy enough. I was looking for something free to try out
    besides Eagle and Kicad that can do multi-layer pcb's.

    I make an effort to avoid lock-in-ware and other crippleware
    and to warn others about such items.
    With rare exception, I have found TANSTAAFL.

    gEDA is free. I've got a four layer board in fab right now, done with
    gEDA/PCB.
