After being out of design more than a decade, I'd like to get back in. I absolutely hate wasting mental effort to deal with a user interface that should have been designed better, so I've been looking for intuitive packages. I suppose nobody will be surprised I wound up here. So, I downloaded the free version of DipTrace to take it for a spin. The first project I wanted to try was a simple one with an Atmel AT32UC3B1256. I was surprised to find it wasn't in the library. Regardless of how easy it might be to make a part, it's not as easy as using an existing part. I don't want to start using a package where every future project I make will require wasted hours and effort reinventing the wheel over and over. So:

1) Am I just unlucky? Are most parts in the database?
2) Will DipTrace connect to Digikey, Mouser, etc for parts?
3) Is there somewhere a huge master repository of schematic symbols and PCB pads I missed?
4) If DipTrace requires making parts frequently, could anyone recommend another package that might better meet my needs?

Thanks for any replies!

1. Our standard libraries have a lot of components. We create new components for each new version.
2. We don't connect to Digikey, Mouser, etc. databases. But we select a lot of components to create from Digikey web site.
3. All our components have already included in standard libraries.
