VSM stepper motor pinouts

stepper motor.JPG I'm trying to put together a project in VSM. Creating a schematic with a unipolar stepper motor driven by an 18M2 and a Darlington (also want to simulate the operation in VSM). The unipolar stepper symbol in my VSM component library doesn't have the pins identified . How can I get the pinout for this device?
Will appreciate some help.
Thanks in advance.......jims

Thanks in advance.......jims[I downloaded the VSM library again and now the stepper motor symbol has pin numbers. Must have somehow corrupted the VSM library. I believe this thread can be deleted. Jim S]

I can't comment on hiding pin numbers but it does seem there are two very similar parts in the libraries, one without pin numbers and one with.

Enter "MOTOR-STEPPER" as Keyword when placing a device from libraries and there are two, in MOTORS (without pin numbers) and one in PICAXE_PARTS (with).

Perhaps you grabbed the one in MOTORS the first time.

I finally settled down and in VSM put together some resistors, switches and the stepper motor symbol. I was able to figure out how this motor is configured. I'm attaching my "crude" rendition of the pinouts and internal configuration. This stepper is really a neat little device and with a simple program it works well in the VSM simulator. jims
