Hi guys,

Im working with altium designer 6 and have to place a component that's not in the library.

Hi,

If you want new component to be stored into your design library than open your library >> tools> new blank component.
Now from datasheet create the footpeint and in tool>>component properties assign the footprint name and hieght. now save the library.
Now you can use your new symbol for placement on the board.

Regards,
Ricky
