I find there are seemingly random occasions when updating a PCB
from a library fails to work. When this happens, I use the forced
manual update process described to achieve the desired aim.

It does the job, however this process is really annoying to have to
go through! Why can't we have a simple button in the PCB tools so
that the update can be driven either from the library editor or from
the PCB editor?

Cheers,

John Haddy
