Footprint and Symbol creation delay
49 6

Hello everyone, I just made a new PCB footprint, I also made a PCB Symbol to link to the footprint. When editing the symbol I seem unable to find the newly created footprint. If I try and find the symbol to place into a schematic it cant find that either. Is there some delay between creating the symbols/footprints and them becoming available to use? I named the PCB Footprint and the symbol MG-17F, I created another footprint and symbol MG-17F-RCS just in case it helped - it did not! Thank you for your help <br> \*\* UPDATE \*\* I managed to find the footprint in the symbol editor by specifying the Classes as 'Workspace' and it found the symbol I had created. The Symbol could still not be found when trying to 'Place' a symbol in the schematic editor. \*\* UPDATE \*\* \- Richard

I logged in with another browser and everything was there. I added the new symbol to the schematic and saved the project then went back to the first browser and although the search still didn't find the symbol, the updated schematic and footprint were available in the design. First browser = Chrome, second browser = Edge. Should I need to log out and back in again? \- Richard
