Yes.
You have to open your existing layout. In menu Library select Archive Library and save it. That is all.

Thanks for the reply.
But I changed some land pattern pads in the design and not in library. so I wanted the new libs with the change made in the pcb file.

This archive command only copies components from the libray form where the net list is loaded and not from the board.

1. Save PCB in ASCII format.

2. Open Library Executive, Library, Translate.

3. Select Source Format = P-CAD ASCII, select your PCB as Source Lib, type name of new Destination library and translate
