Cant find schematic component in component editor

#1 Post by paynterf@gmail.com » 30 Oct 2017, 21:22

Hi,

In my schematic, I have a custom 1x8 header component, with custom labels, with a standard 1x8 header pattern. Now I want to edit some of the text associated with this component, but I can't find it using component editor. I can select the component in schematic editor and select properties, and I can see the text I want to change, but of course I can't edit it in this screen.

So, I open component editor, but for the life of me I can't find where that custom component is stored, and I think I have checked everywhere I can think of.

Given that I have a component showing in the schematic editor, how do I find and then modify this component?

TIA,

Frank

Schematic Editor
Double-click on the component (not its pins) to bring up the Component Properties dialog window and select the [Main] tab. The component's library path will be displayed in the "Library" entry box near the bottom.
