+pcb +footprint +potentiometer

The trouble is that there are literally *hundreds* of designs, and thus footprints. There are some available in the vendor-specific libs, but chances are you don't have exactly the parts in the lib.

Easier just to make your own. Quick and simple, and you get exactly what you want.

Anyone seen the ESP CAD library from C@dence for OrC@d yet ? It supposedly has about 60,000 parts from digikey in it.

footprint potentiometer

If you are newbie in Protel you should try to create your own pcb lib. Is conveniente for you learning. Is very easy and with time you will acquire many experience with Protel. "Es muy facil solo necesitas un calibre o bajarte las hojas de datos del componente y ver el footprint recomendado por el fabricante". Try to download libraries to the manufacturer of the component. Regards. "Saludos amigo".
