Proper way to create a custom component / footprint / symbol?

Question asked by delta on Oct 17, 2016

Example: I'm using the HMC3587 amplifier.

1. I created a new schematic with a S2P block to read the s-params. 

2. I created a new symbol based on the schematic. 

3. I created a new layout and drew the footprint + pins. 

 

Problem:

If I create a new schematic and drop the symbol down, then try to generate a layout from the schematic, the auto-generated layout changes my footprint (see attached). 

 

How do I stop this?

 

Thanks
