The current online help file leaves out some critical steps in the process of building custom parts.  For instance, it tells how to build a symbol but leaves out the critical "Copy to" step to put it in a library so the user can actually place it in a schematic.  It also doesn't give an overview so the inexperienced user doesn't know that symbols, models, and footprints all have to go in their own separate library files and BEFORE the user uses the Parts Wizard to build the parts file that ties them all together.  Adding these details would save a lot of calls to the support line.
