I have a number of 'projects', all empty because I don't know how to put a schematic into one.
The prompt on the screen says

Empty project
Use the context menu to create new schematic or board files within the project

The only reference I can find to 'context' is the one on the help tab and that is only a help page?

I also have a number schematic drawings that don't belong to a project for the reason stated above, is it possible to move them into the projects I made of the same name?

I don't see any reason for them to be in projects other than the neatness of the filing but I suppose one day they will be useful.

Hi,

1) entry in the panel - options - folders -> the location of your project folder
[eagle-panel-project002.png]
2) in the panel you can create your folder for your project (it will stored in your project folder automatically)
[eagle-panel-project.jpg]

3) open in the menu - create a new project.
create a new sch file - your sch will saved in your project folder automatically -> the green lamp lit on
[eagle-panel-project001.jpg]

4) in the schematic you have a menu - "change to board"
[eagle-panel-project003.png]
-->> click on the item "change to board" - then you will asked "migrate the devices from schematic  to board" ... or similar..

>>> important - press in the menu "save all" then you project will now created with your name.
ok, this project is just empty as well now you can create your schematic and all devices will also inserted into the board automatically.

Best Regards,
Gerald

Thank you for the reply.

I am assuming that a project is just a directory where all the files associated with one job (or project) are kept?
I have made directories for all my projects and moved the sch files into them (I also moved all the temp files with the suffix .s#1 .s#2 etc.
The control panel only shows the .sch and not all the temp files (I have no board in that project but I suspect it would show a .brd if I did). (I made a new .brd in my test project and it did.)

I now see that if I click on the button after the project and turn it green it puts the sch in that project, is this correct? it did with .brd .

My list in the control panel still shows as

eagle
test . empty project
test.sch

Why does it still say 'empty project'?

I have just answered my own question, I closed the control panel and reopened it and the 'empty project' has gone.

Thank you Geralds that answers my question perfectly.

Hi,
if you"right-click" the project you can insert/edit the description of
your "empty project".

The .s#x files are backup files. Eagle shows only the actual files.
