I've started to learn EasyEda, and have even placed my first PCB order.

I'm working on a couple other schematics, but I'm having trouble finding the right parts with the right footprints in their library.

Are there are secrets to searching through all the parts?

If I’m not mistaken, you can upload eagle libraries. The madbean library over on his site is the way to go.

Did you work out how to upload an Eagle Library onto Easy EDA? I also would like to upload the madbean library but am having trouble.

I haven't ordered PCB assembly from JLCPCB yet. There are generic parts for resistors and capacitors in the Common Library, if you want to use that. If you have the actual parts, search for them in the "User Contributed" tab, and you'll probably find it. For example, there are lots of 3PDT footswitch footprints there (way too many, in fact). I usually buy parts from AliExpress, and if I search for the part in the "User Contributed" tab, I usually find the correct part. For example, I bought MTS-302 3PDT toggle switches, and I found the correct part in the User Contributed tab. Now, if you want to buy the components from LCSC, I found it better to search for what I want in the website, get the LCSC part # and use that directly in EasyEDA to get the exact part I want. Searching inside the tiny popup screen can be a bit confusing. Cheers!

Did you? I have also tried and failed. But then I can't even load the madbean library into autodesk.
