I know you can create multiple footprints for a device, and one is labelled as default. And the default footprint is automatically selected when a device is added. But is there a way to change the footprint that a device uses in the design?
When you are going to add a device right click on the listing and click on "Select Details", then you can select which footprint. We use this feature to control interface between multiple drawings/harnesses, we generate two footprints. The first is one side of the interface and the second is the mate.
