Component has unplaced footprint


#1

Constraint violations recently appeared on a design without my (knowingly) altering anything in that part of the design. It states “component has unplaced footprint”. I have been able to reproduce this error in a test layout by adding a component and then deleting its footprint in the layout without removing the component in the schematic, but in my case the footprint is still visible in the layout.

So:

  • Does anyone know what causes this problem?
  • What can be done to correct it?

It appears we have a bug with this.

If you delete a footprint, the associated symbol will stay. To remove the component, that has to be done on the schematic.

If you delete the footprint, you will receive a constraint error. In the part list, if you click on the part without a footprint (that you deleted) it will add the footprint back. This is where the bug is, the error won’t go away until you move the footprint. We’ll need to fix that.

Thanks for the answer. When you say “the error won’t go away until you move the footprint”, do you mean “remove”? Like, I have to remove the footprint and add it again?
