@PeterTecks DesignSpark moderator here. We've been back through all comments and can only find one deleted comment - which was a test comment as Sven Sager was unable to post his comment due to some code...
It sounds like you have not saved your component you created with correct footprint or you have not used a unique name for the footprint which is then 'picking up' the original.
There are lots of...
This is covered in the FAQ's and discussed on the forum.
