Schematic symbol does not update after editing

<t>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 yo...

Re:update footprint

<t>You could just edit the footprint and change the silkscreen. Right click on the footprint on the layout, select edit footprint and modify the silkscreen. When you save the footprint you will be creating new copy of the part. This operation will ask you if you want to updated all of the same footp...

Re:1mm BGA routing

<r>You should be able to route a 1 mm bga with PCB123. You will need to allow your via to share some space with the bga pad as shown in the image below.<br/> <br/> Use the smallest hole size .014" with the smallest via pad size .025" (only available when a multi-layer board is selected) and you shou...

Re:Footprints with multiple pins for a single electrical connection.

Bill, At this time you cannot have a single pin in the schematic that represents two pin on the layout. PCB123 requires that a pin exist on the schematic so that you can connect it on the layout. I will submit your feedback as an enhancement request for a future release. Thanks.

Re:Footprints with multiple pins for a single electrical connection.

<t>I just thought of one work around but it won't work if you are already using hidden pins in your design. Create your symbol with one of the collector pins set as hidden. A hidden pin can only be assigned as VCC or GND but once you place the symbol on your schematic you will be asked to assign the...
