    How to update properties (library path) to symbol definition in PCB Editor? Reply

    I'm examining a symbol in a *.brd file, and I find the following line: 

    "Properties attached to symbol definition LIBRARY_PATH = M:/afx/Board_Projects/LIBRARY/ALLEGRO_LIB/symb ols/ff1760_smd.psm"

     But my library_path should be different; how do I update this information?

     

    Thanks!

    Create a library location, set the tools to use it (Setup - User Preferences - Paths - Library - psmpath and padpath) then try a Place - Update Symbols, check Package Symbols and any others that you need.

    Steve,

    Thank you so much. I owe you so many beers at this point, it is ridiculous.
