This dialog allows you to update the Pad or Vias templates in the current design from their source. For example, if a Pad that has been placed from a Pad Via Library template and the source Library template has been subsequently updated, the Update function will pull in those template changes to the PCB – updating all Pads that use the Library template. Use this dialog that lists the details of the detected change(s) that will be applied to configure the template update.
From the PCB Pad Via Templates panel, click the Update button (located beneath the Local Pad & Via Library region of the panel).
Three update options are offered by the dialog to control the update process:
This synchronization behavior is established by the Library link property of Pads and Vias as seen in the Properties panel. An indication that differences exist between the local version of the template and the source template is provided in the Changed column of the Pads/Vias section in the Pad & Via Templates mode of the PCB panel.
The bottom region of the dialog lists Pads/Vias to be updated. Information about each is listed including Type, Description, Library, Template, and Action. Additionally, you can select to mark each Pad/Via as Locked and/or In Component. When enabled, these options subject the object to controls in the top region of the dialog.
