    Updating footprint in PCB window after being changed in PCB library

    Hello,

    I designed my board in Altium designer. After checking the DRC I had to change a clearance in my PCB library. Howeve after doing that, updating my schematic librar and schematic, there was nothing to update into PCB window( it means changing a size,clearance, ... in PCB library which nothing else (such as numbers of pins , ...) happens would not update PCB component in last design).

    How can I update PCB foorprint in PCB window after changing the footprint in PCB library?

    try deleting the part in the schematic, then adding it back from the updated library
    that should bring in all new
    you'll have to do some routing again, but only 1 part

    Re: Updating footprint in PCB window after being changed in PCB library

    Thank you so much, it is somehow time-consuming because in my project that I have used multi-channel structure is so complex to do this procedure.

    Not sure what your problem is. Altium Designer has e.g. a function "update selected component from PCB library" under component actions. Can be performed for all design components at once.

    Thank you for your comment, Yes I have checked but it doesn't work. I changed all of them by the mentioned way by wwfeldman.
