Mike,
Yup I tried it your way awhile ago, and also tried cntl,
shift etc, and no luck only one at a time. Like I said
even the process using synchronize with update
footprints checked does not always update all
footprints. I can't put a finger on it but I have seen it
update parts some of the time though, but again
not all in one shot. I have not had the lately to
try and figure out what is happening so I have been
some what keeping track of footprints I have changed.
However after so many designs doen its really a pain
to keep track of never mind having to update them
individually!!!!!
I guess this update function must work just like the "matched lengths"
function, basically it doesn't!
(IMHO) if you need to run the command many many times to get lengths to
match that would not be my definition of working, and even after 10-20 times
the
lengths are still not even close, and that is with plenty of
room in that area to accomplish the task.
