  • If you have made a mistake and the edited PCB Lib is incorrect then DO NOT SAVE IT but go back to step 5 and proceed from there.

If the edited PCB Lib is correct then Save the edited PCB Lib.

10) Find the renamed copy again using the SHIFT+F search then left-click on it in the list to select it.

11) Wait a second or so and then right-click on it and select Modify

The edited footprint will appear to the creator in My Parts:

It can also be found by everyone using the SHIFT+F search under User Contributions but for anyone but the creator to use it, they must first left-click to select it and see the preview and then right-click on it and click Add Favorite:
