Hi guys.
I am trying to design the nrf24L01+ breakout for use in eagle, sparkfun obviously have all of their's available but not the generic one, designed by nordic.

I cant for the life of me work out, how people get only one set of "labels" to appear - i.e when I design the symbol, I have to name up the pins, and then when i design the package I have to name the pins, but when i then connect the pins together in the device, and use it in a schemtaic, I always see two sets of labels!
Can anyone advise me on how to stop this - because i swear its gonna come back to bite me in the future - or if anyone has designed this part (unlikey) please could I have their library?

Can you post a screen shot? I don't think I've ever seen duplicate labels.

That happens to me all the time and I ignore it. There is some step that I am missing, and likely the same for OP. I think I could find it following the tutorial but, for me, that is more effort than pretending it does not exist.

It's in the symbol editor of the library page.

You can 'change visible' which offers 'off', 'pins', 'pads', and 'both' - the default seems to be 'both'.

Invariably I forget this, and then equally invariably select the wrong option when I edit the symbol...

Found it Jim, there's an 'I' in the tools on the left, then within that there's a visible option.
I have attached a schematic, is there any chance someone could have a look, and see if Ive made any big mistakes. Ive not made a schematic from scratch before.
Thanks
Alex
