    how to update a footprint in Allegro PCB Editor 16.3 Reply

     Hi, I am now using Allegro PCB editor to layout my circuit and got a problem:

    During the layout process I modified the footprint (.psm file) of one IC, but I don't know how to update it in my .brd file.

    I tried ECO in OrCAD capture but it didn't work.

    In PCB editor, I also tried  several methods but failed (Place -> Update Symbols & Tools -> Padstack -> Replace ..)

    Anyone can tell me how to do this? Thank you.
