Tips

  1. The entities returned - Components or Footprints - depends on the chosen scope, defined using the Search in field in the File Libraries Search dialog.
  2. When searching components, all SchLib and IntLib libraries - available, or along a defined search path - will be interrogated. When searching footprints, all PcbLib and IntLib libraries will be interrogated.
  3. All results are listed in the Query Results listing, back in the Components panel.
  4. For a schematic component, the name is checked against its Design Item ID property. For a PCB Footprint, the name is checked against its Footprint property.
