Hi - I just finished my first schematic with Diptrace - the only thing that's left to do is add connectors for the bipolar power supply. I already spent 1 hour looking for this thing in the libraries - no luck. I cannot find a simple jumper as well! From the examples in Schematic_3 there is an element with name J15 which is of type "Power", but I cannot seem to find this in any library. Am I doing smth. wrong or Diptrace is really missing something so basic?

You can create component with two terminal in Component editor within one minute. However if you like component from Schematic_3, right click on it and select "Save to library". Then you will find the component in specified library.
Jumper is available in "Disc_Sch" library, but it has not attached pattern.

2-Pin SIP will work as a jumper, You can also add in headers, You insert a connection, for examble an 8 pin connector and attach a 2x4 .100 header which you can use for a 4 pair jumper. You can also use the SIP connectors for power, unless you need more than an amp or two power. I don't believe there are any built in .156 or 4mm power patterns in the Diptrace libraries. There are a bunch of 0.100 hdr and power jack connectors in the Diptrace "con_misc.lib" (pattern library), many of these don't have components, so you need to roll your own and then attach the pattern.
