Hello thabiso

[quote:1ftns9c3]Is it possible to download the entire package library instead of per component.
For example, is it possible to download the entire "Altium 2010 and newer" library instead of component type.[/quote:1ftns9c3]
No. The DesignSpark library is totally different from any other CAD library (as most CAD systems are).

The aim is for users to build up their own specificic libraries without the burden of a library expanding indefinately and impacting on performance. ModelSource represents the maintained route for components.

You can edit components downloaded from ModelSource to generate your own within the Library manager.
The Library Manager enable you to simply create parts using the wizard or new parts from scratch.

As a final option the old none-supported libraries from V3 are still available in V5 and can be enabled from the files tab in the Llibrary Manager, but ModelSource is the preferred and suggested route.
