Re: Placing and Editing ports

You can only see the Net Assignment section when you have the add port tool selected or when you have a port selected. The Port Attributes section contains the Net Assignment field and will be at the top of the Edit Panel as shown below.

This part has been updated in the following libraries. maxim_12-17-2009_4.slb maxim_12-17-2009_3b.slb maxim_12-17-2009_3...

Re: PCB123 Library Corrections

Several libraries have been updated to correct 0805 and 0603 footprints that actually have 1206 footprint. Several examples of this issue are shown below. These parts should have 0603 or 0805 footprints, but the footprint that is paired with the part is actually 1206. PN: ERJ-3EKF24R9V, Footprint: R...
