Is it needed to create a part in central library for each component in databook?

I´m adding components to databook and it seems that Mentor needs a part to be created in the Central Library for each component added to the databook.

Nonetheless, I´ve tested adding a component to databook without adding a part and it seems PADS Designer links the part to the required symbol.


So, is it really necessary to add a part for each component added to the databook?


for example: If I want to add a new capacitor, do I have to create a new part, or is PADS Designer capable of connecting the symbol+footprint already existing in the central library without creating that new part?
