How do I make a custom LED part that *looks* like an LED on the schematic? So far, for LED's, I've been using Diodes from the Discrete library, but on the schematic, they obviously look like Diodes and not like LED's.

Typically, LEDs are indicated with a schematic diode symbol that has at least one outward-pointing arrow. In some examples the arrows are straight; in others, the arrow resembles a lightning bolt. If you prefer, you can surround everything with a thin-line circle, too. The choice is yours. Just make sure it has the outward-pointing arrow(s).

Tutorial - creating a simple component
1) In the Main Menu of the Component Editor, click on Help and then select DipTrace Tutorial in the drop-down menu.
2) In the Bookmarks section of the tutorial, select the following: [+]Creating Libraries, [+]Designing a component library, Designing a Resistor (component). This should open to page 117.

Here is what I use for my LEDs...
