Eagle - how can I display inner pin information
For example, if I place a usb components, I need
to display which pad is +/-/d+/d-, how to trun this
display on in board design? I mean, I know it's
there somewhere because I can see it in the library
editor.
Thanks.

Are you using the schematic editor as well?  If so, then you should not need to worry about what pin is what in the board editor, as you connect the signals in the schematic editor and it will connect it as appropriate in the board layout.

Also, w.r.t. this and your other question, are you aware that CADsoft has an active support forum.  I'm sure you'd get more responses there.  Check out their website for a link to it.

Cheers,
-Neil.

There's a setting for the pins in the library's "symbol" editor
"change visible" which lets you decide whether the pad and/or
pin names are visible in the schematic.  (of course, this means
that the pins have to have sensible names.)  Or you can write in
additional text wherever you want.  The provided libraries are
pretty inconsistent in ... pretty much every way, but you can
modify them as you see fit, or create your own.

As far as I know, there's no way to get the names to appear on
a schematic if the library wasn't set up that way.

Likewise, there's no way to get the names to appear on a board.
You're not supposed to NEED them on a board, cause all your
signal connections should have been set up in the schematic editor.
(you can make boards with no schematic, but it's not really designed
to do that, and it won't be very pleasant.)

Ok, I see now, this is my mistake, that I was doing it without a
schematic. Now I see, even for simple designs, the schematic
stage should not be skipped. Thank you for the link to the eagle
forum.
