    Totally agree, I have used a fair few packages in industry and attempting to use Eagle is just bizarre - there is no intuition in its interface at all for me.

    I learnt all the other packages without manuals, pretty easy to pick up. I want to spend time getting the job done, not learning some peculiar (for me) interface :).

    You cannot "loan out" a copy of Proteus. You must purchase it.

    And a quick warning before you ask, it is against forum rules (and illegal) to ask for a cracked version of the software. Either find a friend who uses it and borrow their computer, or purchase it yourself. I'm afraid there is no other option.

    I love how people allways misspell the name of this program, and it is allways so obvious they never even bought it.

    I have not used Proteus but tried Eagle and was not really impressed, I am now using (free) Kicad to replace my old outdated version of Orcad, so far it compares favourably.
    And there are many tutorials and utube Vid. out there for it.

    I think Phil was saying he needed the software because he already has files created in Proteus and needs to make changes to them. You cannot port from Proteus to Eagle or Kicad (to my knowledge).

    Thanks Max, never heard that term before. Guess it's a Canadian/British thing :p

    Well I am Canadian but I was born and raised here::happy:
    This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
    This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
    This other Eden, demi-paradise,
    This fortress built by Nature for herself
    Against infection and the hand of war,
    This happy breed of men, this little world,
    This precious stone set in the silver sea,
    Which serves it in the office of a wall
    Or as a moat defensive to a house,
    Against the envy of less happier lands,--
    This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
    (W.S.)
