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, only schematic libraries - available along the defined library path - will be interrogated. When searching footprints, only PCB libraries will be interrogated.
  3. All results are listed in the Query Results listing, back in the Components panel.
