    How to change package design(.dra) to reflect in layout after placement of component is done Reply
    I have made some modifications in the package file of a component (say changed the silkscreen or place bound), 

    So I know by ECO mode the changes I made are getting reflected in the library. 

    But if suppose I have placed the components already, in the board layout(.brd) , those changes are not getting reflected, 

    Let me know where I am going wrong.

    In the board file try Place - Update Symbols, then check the boxes for the parts that have changed (Package Symbols) and check the required boxes if padstacks have changed etc or if you need to ignore the FIXED property then click on Refresh,
