EAGLE how to move components between sheets without rerouting?

Hi everyone!

I have spent too much time trying to figure out how to move components
between
sheets in the schematic, without ripping up the previously made routes
in the
correspondant board.

Is it possible?

Cheers...

Franco.

I seem to remember that just moving parts to another sheet
was a pain in the ass...

I think you can do what you want if you close the routing view,
move the parts (being sure to keep the U? and R? assignments)
and then open the routing view and check things to make sure
the views are consistent.

[Be sure to save a copy first. It may take a few tries to
get it right.]

Franco,

Try asking over in eagle.support.eng or eagle.userchat.eng at
news.cadsoft.de.

Ok, thanks for the answers. I am gonna try the trick Hal pruposed. It
sounds logical.

Best Regards...

Try keeping everything in one sheet then. Eagle is a big pain in the
butt. Have you tried PCB123 schematic/layout software. Looks like an
eagle clone with no # of layer restrictions and with a better gui,
plus you order the board directly from the software, no gerber file
hassles...

Many will say that's NOT a "plus" for an ECAD package.
no gerber file hassles...
no gerber file capability so that the app is not lock-in-ware.
There. Fixed it for you.

The company

appears to be a pack of liars

who can't even construct a standards-compliant Web page

Have you tried it yet? I downloaded and installed it yesterday and it
looks OK doesn't have an extensive library yet, but the footprint
editor looks easy enough. I was looking for something free to try out
besides Eagle and Kicad that can do multi-layer pcb's.

I make an effort to avoid lock-in-ware and other crippleware
and to warn others about such items.

With rare exception, I have found TANSTAAFL.

gEDA is free. I've got a four layer board in fab right now, done with
gEDA/PCB.
