Why are the changes I made to a symbol not appearing in my project? An old or otherwise wrong version of the symbol appears when I insert the symbol.
Changes to symbols are not automatically updated in projects in order to preserve the appearance of completed projects as they were designed.
If a symbol is modified in Create Symbol while a project is open and the symbol has been used in that project, a prompt will appear with an option to update the symbol definition in the project.
To update a project with a new symbol definition:
Open a page of the project using Project Manager.
Select Update Symbol.
Click the Get Symbol List button on the Update Symbol dialog.
Click OK to begin updating the symbols in the project. Click the Help button on the Update Symbol dialog for details.
Note: For a schematic symbol inserted on a page that has a family assigned, the connection point text specified by the family will override the connection point text defined in the symbol. To change the connection point text on a symbol in this situation, modify or create a new family and adjust the connection point text there.
Another possible cause of the "wrong" appearance when a symbol is inserted is that the symbol exists in more than one catalog listed in the Catalog Paths area of the Setup dialog or it also exists in a "ProjectCatalog" subfolder of the project's folder. Regardless of which catalog the symbol is selected from, the software will insert the definition it finds first, and the search hierarchy is the ProjectCatalog (if present) followed by the Catalog Paths in the order they are listed. In this case, remove the symbol from the extra paths, or change the order of Catalog Paths.
Error - Some connection point text is invalid
