Schematic symbol does not update after editing

This problem you are experiencing is a know issue that we hope to have resolved in a future release. The original version of the edited symbol is stored with the board file. If you close your design and start a new layout you could add the modified part and you would see the updated symbol. If you are too far along in the current schematic to start over, you can use the updated symbol by ...

Schematic Symbol Editor monopolizes the CPU

I have noticed over at least the two preceding versions of V4 and the current version that whenever the Symbol Editor is invoked, approximately 99% of CPU time (as shown in the Task Manager and observed subjectively) is used by the Symbol Editor.

I guess I could copy the design to a new file and ...

creating a PCB for use with a card-edge connector?

first, I'm new here (hi!) and I'm stumbling through the schematic and layout editors, learning as I go.

One question, I want my board to plug into an off-board card-edge connector. How do I indicate this on the schematic? The connector won't be part of the board itself, but I need some way of telling the schematic here is the I/O, that in the layout forms the card edge. Do I use a port? ...
