Replace Component (Managed)

Modified by Tiffany Cullen on Apr 18, 2019

The Replace Component dialog

Summary

The Replace Component dialog provides direct access to all available server-based managed components and file-based library components. The dialog offers full details of the selected component (Parameters, Models, Part Choices, Supplier data, etc.,), component comparison, and for Managed Components, a filter-based parametric search capability for specifying target component parameters.

The dialog uses the basic search engine functionality and view that is applied in the Manufacturer Part Search panel. While the Manufacturer Part Search panel harnesses the Altium Parts Provider service and focuses on component manufacturer and supplier data searches, the dialog is populated with ready-to-place components from your managed content server and file-based library sources.

The dialog is accessed in the following ways:

  • From the schematic editor, access the Item Manager dialog (Tools » Item Manager), right-click on a listed component item then select Choose manually from the context menu.
  • From the schematic or PCB editor, enable Alternate Part in the Edit Component Variation dialog (accessed by clicking in the Component Variation column of Variant Management dialog) then click the Choose button. 
The Variant Management dialog is accessed by clicking Project » Variants.
