Altium Designer: Editing part properties before placing it

Not open for further replies.



I'm creating a a custom PCB library. I need to place a lot of holes and pads with the exact size and properties. I don't want to edit each of them one by one.

I watched a tutorial video on Youtube (2:16 to 2:35), in which pad is selected from the toolbar then somehow the property window of the pad is opened BEFORE placing it on the sheet. After editing its properties, multiple copies of the pad with the new custom properties can be placed on the sheet just by simply clicking desired positions on the sheet.

I want to learn how to open properties of the part before placing it.
Can anyone please tell me how to do this?
