Newbie that needs help...

I'm trying to lean using the free DipTrace.
I'm at the schematic.
Can't even find a generic Op Amp.
Do I look for it while in the schematic area or in the component editor?

A search can be performed in the Schematic Editor
. If you only need a symbol there are four variations in the "Symbols

If you need a specific manufacturer and part number, you can use the search filter to find a matching part that might be in the standard libraries. In the Place Component
window on the left side of the screen, left-click on the Filter
panel (below the Library Tools
panel) and enter the necessary search info in the fly-out Filter
dialog window. Additional search parameters can be enabled using the [+]
I recommend going through the included tutorial for at least 45 minutes every other day. This will get you up and running sooner than you realize. There is also a "Video Guided Tour
