I am a new 16.5 user. I designed some footprints in package designer as per the tutorials. I saved them in a folder as .psm and .dra parts. However when I go to create a netlist in Capture, or even to simply manually place the parts in PCB Editor neither I nor the software can find them.
In PCB Editor they are not in the "Package Symbols" list anymore (I feel like they were at some point). I don't see where to import them. Do I create a library? Am I missing an import function? Am I missing some crucial step?
If someone could walk me through this I would be very appreciative, thank you.
The folder where you saved the dra and psm (and pads) will need to be listed in the padpath and psmpath settings. Take a look at :-

Ah I knew it must be something simple! Very clear, thank you!
