Dennis,

keep your PCB file open, open your PCB library and display the footprint you want to 
update. Click on the 'Update PCB'. That should update all your footprints of the same 
type.

Cheers,
Igor

Subject: Re: [PEDA] 99SE SP6 updating footprints



i'm sure this has been discussed (?)
but i just noticed the following in 99SE PCB

if you have several or more parts of the same footprint on a board
and you type in a new and valid footprint name
and do the global thing: copy footprint, footprint=same

the one you are editing changes to the new footprint and all
the others acquire the NEW FOOTPRINT NAME from the global operation 
but the footpints don't change to the new one

is there some trick here to force them all ?

they are place and i don't want to delete and reload nets
to get them
