Warning after compilate schematic

Ivan_Mendez , 04-19-2021, 01:00 PM
When I finished I followed indications of this course (Altium essentials) and made Project --> Compile (in my case shows validate PCB project) and as a result shows a lot of warnings because of footprint of X component cannot be found (send you a screen capture attached). It is ok? I would like to know to continue without problems.

I am working on a video which explains how to fix this. Should be out tomorrow.

I faced the same issue but I ignored it since we din't create the footprint at that stage. I believe it is ok to proceed or does it have any issue later ?

I followed the indications in the video and I don´t Know why but it doesn´t work in my case. When I validate the project continue displaying warnings about "footprint of X component cannot be found"

Do you have footprints correctly linked to your symbols? It should work if everything is set correctly.

I start with Altium essentials course and lesson 1 and 2. At the finished on the lesson 2, I did the indication to validate project. I don´t remember have linked footprints to my simbols in fact I currently doing lesson 3 when we are creating the footprints. Could be the problem?

ah, yes, that could be the reason why you see the warning.

Perfect. I have just Finished lesson three and The problem was fixed when I complete de footprints in this lesson. But I had a new little problem that I don´t Know to fix. When I was taking measures on the last footprint (capacitor C1210) I went to go back and clean the measures and I didn´t press Shif+C. I don´t Know what wrong keys combination I pressed and I can´t see de footprint screen as the beginning (I Can´t see pads staying on top overlay layer and I could before press the wrong keys combination). Here I show a Sreen capture what I can see now. How can I fix this? Thanks

I Managed to Fix It. Pressed Ctrl+D (view configuration) and then I selected "Altium transparent 2D" into Configuration.

PS: This looks to me, like you pressed SHIFT+S ... try to press SHIFT+S multiple time. It cycles between different views.
