Yahya Tawil wrote up some excellent pointers – with handy animated GIFs to visualize them – for using Eagle CAD. As you might suspect, as with most software, it’s a balance of using the mouse and more-quickly initiating tasks, menus, and shortcuts via your keyboard. Some of them you’ve probably had to hunt down on your own, and others you might not have even thought about yet, but they could speed up your production (or just make your interaction with Eagle CAD more rewarding by hitting a few key combinations instead of having to sift through multiple menus and sub-menus).
Most hobbyists and many professionals use Eagle CAD as a daily tool in designing schematics and laying out PCB. I’m going to share with you the most important tips and tricks for using Eagle CAD, which make my work much easier and faster.
