Dwight,
Mr. Lomax pointed out and unless there is something wrong
with my intsallation, it does respect a footprint in each symbol however
ONLY the first and not any alternates that may be listed.
If you have a symbol with more than one footprint listed
try update footprints and see what ends up on your board.
Every time I have tried this it replaces what was there and puts the
first one back on the board.
Thanks
Bob
