Title: component lead lengths
Post by Jerry on Jun 28th, 2021 at 8:31am
I bought VeeCAD many years ago and recently come back to after a very long break.  Great its now free, it's an excellent product.

I think I may have missed something, but can the lead length in a leaded item (e.g. Resistors & Diodes) be varied?

Sometimes I need these components to span more than the 'set' length. It could be done with extending the body but that kinda' defeates the object.
The only option I can see is to add a Custom (rather than leaded) outline for every version.
Keep up the good work.

Hi Jerry

Hold down the SHIFT key and drag the lead to change length. If you drag the very end of the lead you can even move the end sideways and set the component at an angle. The video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDP82bgfweU will help.

Perfect, thanks Roger
I knew I was missing something, as I don't remember a problem before.
