Issues importing LCF file

Laura_cek

Hello,

 

Somehow is not possible to import LCF file through Library manager. 

I got "Warning" that "These files were skipped during add" - what wrong am I doing?

 

Would be really glad to get some help.

You don't import LCF files, you link/add them to the Library using File->Library Manger

You can’t add an LCF file to the embedded library.

You need to extract it and add the individual objects.

Or just load it as a regular library.

Thank you for the answers, but nothing happens - do not why.

I am trying to add single .lcf file as Linked library, after reloading I see it extracted in Library content section, but nothin can't find in Objects.

Why? Would really be grateful, feeling really hopeless!

If they are objects (not doors or windows - you can only see these with the door and window tools) and you can't see them when you go to the object tool, make sure you are not in the search mode.

If that is not it can you post a screen shot of your library manager showing the loaded library?
