Schematic Library Issues

waleedsyed , 09-08-2020, 02:10 AM
Hi everyone,
I am using Altium 20.1 and my question is regarding the sch library. I generated a schematic library and I want to use that as my default library for the components.
When I try to update the schematic symbol, I see 2 sets of libraries :
1- imxbb.SCHLIB (unknown path. Is there a way to find it?)
2. IMX53_BB_1v2.SCHLIB (The one i generated and want to use)​​​

I cannot add parameters to components because imxbb.SCHLIB does not show in the project tab

Thanks for the reply Robert.
Following what is mentioned on the link you shared. I can update components one by one.
Is there a way to update all the components to new library at once? because both old and new libraries are the same, just the name is different.

I have not tried that, but maybe when you select all components in your schematic, then in the properties panel you can change library in the Source? However, if this works, there will be no verification if the symbol really exists in the new library.
