Disappearing resistor value on schematic.

Strange one.  I created my own resistor library, importing a symbol from a working library.  I went ahead and created my package, then device, etc.  I have a device with a symbol, package, connections and prefix as I understand from the video series.  But when I place the symbol on the schematic, it i the value (R1206), not a blank value.  I go to the properties, and there is no value field to modify.  Just device and package - both of which are named R1206.  Name shows correctly - R1, position in the schematic, Gate G$1, what library it is from.  It is smashed.  I bring it a part from another library - resistor-power supplied by Eagle, and I get the same thing except there is a value field and some attributes.  What is going wrong here?  I really need to enter resistor values. 

Hi bcarterW8DV4,

I hope you're doing well. Did you remember to set the Value radio button in the device editor to On? If you didn't then the only way to adjust the value in the schematic would be to click on the VALUE command and then click on the part. EAGLE will issue a warning go ahead and click OK and then you can assign the value.

I encourage you to go back to your library and edit the Device so that the Value radio button is(bottom right corner of device editor) on. Save your library and then update to the schematic.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
