Altium Designer: updating PCB
July 10, 2019 - 6:30pm

I have finished my schematic for an echo circuit using PT2399 IC as per the application circuit in datasheet. I have downloaded the part (including footprint) from snapeda.com and updated my Altium library. But I can't update the design to PCB. There's no option as 'Update PCB document' under the 'Design' tab to update the design to PCB. But it is showing for other projects I have done. I don't understand. Please help me, it's urgent.

Path problem or footprint missing

Hey does the new component appear green in your software? If yes then the probelm could be with one of the following

1. The librarey you downloaded does not have a footprint for that part it should have had only the shematic symbol

2. You did not add the correct path to your librarey, make sure it is inside the correct folder. Also try placing it in the project folder to see if it helpsĀ
