Options/Controls

  • Search – use the text box to enter the component type for which you want to search. The list of component types will be filtered according to the search string entered.
  • Component type list – select the desired component type from the list, then click OK, or double-click on the component type.

    • If a component type is referenced by multiple Component Templates, these Templates will be presented under the entry of this component type.
    • If a Component Template has no default component type defined, it will be presented under the <Undefined> entry of the Create new component dialog.
    When connected to an Altium 365 Workspace, note that Component Templates are not supported with the Standard Subscription Plan. As such, this functionality will not be available with this level of access to Altium 365.
After double-clicking a component type or selecting a component type and clicking OK, the Single Component Editor opens as the active document in the main design window from where you can define the new component (displayed as New component in the Projects panel) in terms of description, parameters, etc. After defining the new component, the Projects panel will display the new component.
