Default Eagle PCB Layout

Hi,

How do I draw a line other than a trace(top/bottom)?

I want to add some lines(silk screen?) to indicate v-scoring.

I only see one option and that is wire but that draws traces top or bottom.

Thanks

Use text and type (shift) - "minus" as many times as the length required .you can adjust the length with the font size and rotate or change the angle in "properties" choose the required colour and layer of your choice before you type .

Cheers ,

You do use the trace command. Set the layer to correct layer for silk screen.

If you're sending out this design for manufacture, create another layer for your scoring lines, process it as a separate gerber file with an appropriate name, and put a note in your documentation when you send in the project. That avoids any confusion.
