New Library

This documentation page references Altium NEXUS/NEXUS Client (part of the deployed NEXUS solution), which has been discontinued. All your PCB design, data management and collaboration needs can now be delivered by Altium Designer and a connected Altium 365 Workspace. Check out the FAQs page for more information.


The New Library dialog provides the flow to create a new Workspace library component, component template, footprint, or symbol, or for creating an older generation library (database or file-based).


The dialog is accessed by choosing File » New » Library from the main menus.


Select the desired type of library you want to create in the LIBRARY TYPE region. Information for each library type can be accessed by expanding the respective section below.
