    It sounds like your drawing size is too small to fit the symbols in. Select Setup > Drawing Size and increase the size or select Place > Manually and see if you can place the symbols inside the outline. Let us know if this helps. Thanks!

    another possibility may be that your symbol is built with a piece of geometry far away from the origin of the symbol itself. Bring up your symbol in the symbol editor, display all layers and then do a fit view. If there is something amiss it will be quite obvious.

    Another area to check is the pin numbering. Do the footprint pin numbers match what is used in the schematic symbol.
