electronics made easy
This is the old fritzing discussion forum. Search it for valuable information from 2009 to 2015.
I want to put some small diodes onto a stripboard, but in Fritzing the only parts that seem to be available are .4" long, but I actually want them .2" to fit the board. I thought there would be a way to change the size, but I can't find it. Is the only option to have to create my own parts in the size I need?
The only thing you can do is to 'extend' the leg of the diode back on itself to go to the position you want. If you hover the pointer in the right place over one leg it'll change to a sort of black square with one short line and one long line pointing down from it, you can then click and drag to the place you want the leg to go.
There have been several requests on here for smaller (and also vertical) resistors and diodes for the breadboard/stripboard view.
