    Parts created in SW2015 not following EMP rotation

    Nicholas Benavides

      When using Circuitworks to import from an EMN file (created in eagle),  parts saved SW2015 format do not properly rotate, whereas parts saved in previous versions of SW work fine.  When I view the properties in Circuitworks, I can see that the files have gotten the proper angles, yet when it goes to generate the board, the angles are not used.  Any parts saved in previous version work fine.   I created a simple example to demonstrate my problem.

       

      The part C0805_CI_LIB clearly rotates to follow the EMN file.   The part C1812_CI_LIB created in SW2015 does not rotate, and both parts come out aligned identically, whereas in the EMN file they are at 90 and 0 degrees respectively:
