Choosing footprint from library.
« on: June 11, 2011, 01:45:58 am »
Hi

I have a problem with adding items from my own library for which I defined many footprints. On the schematic always lands with a default value, unless I select the Place but it is too much clicking. If you add the built-in library, this problem does not occur I can grab a footprint that interests me and this will be set on the schematic.

Do you know any solution? Something had to switch in my library?

I think that the movie clearly shows all

Weird, don't see that problem in AD9.3. Is this AD10?

All I can think is create a new library project, copy a part over, compile/install and see if it persists.

Did you specify the correct footprint in your schematic library?

yes, you can see that when click place it works, only grabing from my libraries does not work grabing from build in librares is ok

I've never used altium but did you save the footprint with a value attached (ie when you designed it) if so then that would most likely be the problem. If not and altium is assigning a random value (when saved ) then it is indeed strange.

Edit < Just re watched  the video and you have got the value item ticked in the parameter list. Does this not display the value?>
