I have recently restructured my parts library and I have noticed that some parts are missing either the schematic symbol or the pcb footprint. I know how to edit the parts and include the new library location for either the schematic symbol or the pcb symbol but with hundreds of parts this is going to take a very long time. My question is, Is there a way to assign a specific schematic symbol or pcb footprint to all similar parts at once.
As an example : I have a component library with Zener Diodes, after the restructuring of my component library, the PCB footprints are still there but the schematic symbol is no longer there as it is in a different location to the original source. As you cam imagine, there are many types of zener diodes, but in most cases the schematic symbol is the same. I would like to be able to attach the zener diode schematic symbol to all the zener diodes in this library in one go rather than having to rename them separately.
Is this possible? And if so, could someone please explain how it is done.
My thanks in advance for any assistance.
