    Title: Eagle. Modified one footprint in the library. How to propagate such change to the layout?

    Colleagues,

    I’ve got a simple Eagle project: a schematic, one custom library, a layout. I have already created the layout file and routed some of it. Then modified one of the footprints in the custom library. How can I make this modification visible in the layout?

    Any suggestion, insight or reference is really appreciated!

    Newbie to Eagle. Running version 6.2.0 (free).

    Cheers,
    - Nick

    I believe under the Library menu there is an Update item.

    As MrChips implied, you can use the Update line command in the Schematic view, or you can just drop another copy of the updated part in the schematic. As soon as you drop it, Eagle will tell you that the version in the schematic is different from the library, and should it be updated?

    You can then answer yes, and then delete the new copy (or use it someplace if applicable)

    MrChips and SgtWookie, thanks!

    Doing Library > Update... in the menu didn't do it.
    Running UPDATE command in the schematic didn't do it.
    But temporarily adding an updated part to the schematic did the trick.
