  • Schematic Library Grid? mils or mm?

    First thanks for the videos I'm learning a lot.

    I'm using Altium 18 and there are a few small changes to the interface from your videos.

    My question is what measuring units are you using when creating on the SCH Library? mils or mm?
    As well the grid and snap on the schematic page?

    My components are all kind of an awkward size compared to the ones that you created and don't align well when drawing the wires.



    Thanks

    - I leave that default (mils). To place pins, I always keep it default. To draw the lines inside schematic symbol, I make sometimes the grid smaller, but then I always put it back to default.

    - I leave that default units (mils). Sometimes I make the grid in schematic half of default ... so I change it to 50mil.

      Thanks. It got a bit confusing with the changes on 18.
