Custom library not accessible

Postby curtdodds » Tue Aug 19, 2014 1:37 pm

I have created some components in a custom library (symbols with footprints).
From the schematic page, when I try Insert/Add part/Browse (or search), my custom library is not listed.

Using win7 pro 32-bit, NO hidden files/directories.
How can I add my custom library to the list for access?

One you create a symbol and a footprint you need to put them together using the Parts Manager.

This post walks you through the complete process.
