Just starting out on Altium. I want to start my own library and eventually end with a big library. This is Altium 09 and not the new one with access to the vault.
According to the website:
Adding Footprints from Other Sources You can copy existing footprints into your PCB library. The copied footprint can then be renamed and modified to match the specifications required. If you want to copy existing footprints to your PCB library, you can: select placed footprint(s) in a PCB document and copy ( Edit » Copy ) and paste them into an open PCB library using Edit » Paste Component , or Select Edit » Copy Component when the footprint to be copied is active in the PCB Library Editor, change to the open PCB destination library and select Edit » Paste Component , or select one or more footprints in the list in the PCB Library panel using the standard SHIFT + Click or CTRL + Click, right-click and choose Copy , switch to the target library, right-click in the list of footprint names and choose Paste ."
My option to copy from the library is greyed out, and I have tried several hours trying to get around it with no avail. Also not really anything other than tutorials to be found on the internet!
EDIT After realizing that I am also not able to manage 3D models I re-investigated @Spehro's comment regarding licensing - that lead to solving my problem!
Does anyone know how to do this?
