    I am trying to align two ic's, one has 18 pins, the other 20.
    For some reason the Eagle program seems to be insisting
    that the pins of one ic are always between the pins of
    the second ic. Is this a "snap" problem, what do I do ?

    You might have used a different grid when placing the IC's. The reference
    crosshairs for each IC indicate what
    grid the parts where built with. You can make the grid finer and try to re-
    add the parts. Pick a grid that is common to both parts. Are the parts from
    the library that
    comes with Eagle? If so, what are they?

    1. I suggest posting Eagle questions to sci.electronics.cad

    2. Hover the cursor over each IC and note their approximate
    coordinate locations. Then, take your hand off the mouse and type
    in a command to move one or both of them to nearby, rational,
    positions. E.G.
    "move IC2 (1.5 0.8)"

    3. Now that you have the ICs re-alligned, you can mouse them around
    and the grid setting will help instead of fighting with you.
