Hi guys, i have just came across a problem while placing components in Altium 14.1. When i click on to the component to move it into the board, the component beceomes invisible during movement. How do i make it visible ?
The reason of this happening is that the component jumps far out of the boundaries of your screen because the origin (center) of the footprint was set incorrectly. Return to the footprint library where you made the footprint, then use Edit => Origin to return it to the center of your footprint. Then choose "Update PCB with current footprint" to apply the changes to the PCB. You should then be able to see your component again.
