The following example shows what the updated library information will look like and how to delete the old parts and download the updated library files. In the future we will provide a web page listing the parts that are corrected (updated library information) which includes the libraries that have been modified, the manufacturer's part number that use the updated parts, and the name of the footprint or symbol that has been modified. This will provide you enough information to complete the steps below.
Please feel free to contact customer support if you have any questions.
