I am very new to Dip Trace, but I thought I read somewhere that all pins must be on .1 inch grid. However, I see many components in libraries that don't seem to follow this rule. What are the limitations on pin placement?

There are no limitations, but it is recommended to use .1 grid to be able to connect all wires in schematic with that grid.

How do you connect all wires in schematic if pins are not on .1 centers?

The schematic is the documentation that represents the circuit. For example, a resistor is represented as a zig-zag of lines. The same schematic symbol size is usually used regardless of the physical size of the actual part.

You will be able to connect wires even if pins are not on 0.1 grid. Just click on ends of pins and schematic program will create wire witout assistance.

Thanks. I understand the situation now.
