Backing out a part change - restoring Verified

Found a part to use. Stackpole CSNL1206FT1L00. A verified part.

I wanted to look at the part, copy it. Went in, looked at it, made no changes, then clicked on SAVE to get out. System unverified the part, though I made no changes. Anyone know how to make it verified again?

I thought that maybe what I am seeing is ‘my’ copy of it, and there remains a system copy out there for everyone else to use. If this is the case, then maybe a Remove from Library will allow me to see the system copy. However, I don’t dare do a “Remove from Library” b/c if the one I see is now the ‘system copy’, then I will lose this and I want the PCB layout of this SMT part - it is more to my liking than the others I have seen.

I was curious about this very thing. If you click UNDO, do you not get the verified part back?

In your schematic, click the unverified part’s symbol, open the inspector and click the swap button. search for the part again and click the place component button for the part flagged as verified. that should fix it. As this is a sense resistor, you might want to review its placement and rotation in layout as it might have changed in the replacement process.

Of course, there really isn’t any need to do this at all. As you have guessed, what you’re seeing is a copy of a verified part – an exact copy. All “Verified” means is that it has been reviewed for accuracy by an EE. If you copy an accurate component, it will still be an accurate component.

Besides, as far as I can tell, you’re the only one who can see the copy you made.

There is no UNDO that I can see. There is a “revert” and if one goes to History, there are two curved arrows. One means back up (remove last change), while the other means go forward (restore something that was removed). I used these arrows on another part, they worked well.

We know from experience that one can make a PCB with parts that are not verified. We were careful to ensure all the parts we edited were physically correct on the PCB (right dimensions, correct size holes for the pins, and so on) and everything turned out fine.

So we may choose to live with the part we ‘forked’ that b/c of the fork is unverified.
