EasyEDA Editor has a clear and friendly user interface. It has a short learning curve, and you will be productive in a short time.

Filter

To use the filter first select what module you need in the left navigation panel, and then you can find projects, files, parts, and footprints quickly and easily just by typing a few letters. For example, if you want to find all files containing “NE555” in the title, just type “555”. The filter is non-case sensitive.

The Filter can only find projects, files, part titles, and names. It does not search the Descriptions and Content fields.

Click the X to clear the filter.

The Navigation panel is especially important for EasyEDA: This is where you can find all of your projects, files, parts and footprints.

Project

Here you can find all your projects, both private or shared with the public, or fork them from someone else’s. These options have a context menu found by right clicking and selecting Projects. You will get a menu tree like:

EELib

EElib means EasyEDA Libraries, it provides lots of components complete with simulation models, many of which have been developed for EasyEDA to make your simulation experience easier.

Design Manager

Design Manager, you can check each component and net wiring, and it provides DRC(Design rule check) to help improve your design.

Library

Contains schematic symbols and PCB footprints for many available components and projects. Your own libs and modules will show up here.

Drawing Tools

To keep EasyEDA’s UI clean and sharp, the Wiring and Drawing tools palettes can be resized horizontally, rolled up or hidden so if you want to focus on drawing or have a smaller monitor, you can roll up or hide them to free up more monitor space and reduce the clutter.

The canvas area can be set directly by the Width and Height or from the available preset frame sizes.

Canvas

This is where it all happens! This the area where you create and edit your schematics, PCB layouts, symbols, footprints, and other drawings. You also run simulations and display Waveform traces from here.
