A little bit of a newbe question.

I made a schematic and placed an opamp with the wrong footprint.
I used a thru-hole foot print but I really wanted SMD. When I go
to change the foot print I click on one of the opamps in the package
and tell it the software the correct SMD part number.

I then get a warning about the library path will not be updated for changing only
one part of a multi-part part.

How do I change the whole part to the correct footprint?

You can replace each part of multi-part component one by one. While doing so, select substitution component name and then part number. In result, all parts will be replaced and component will have correct footprint.

It would seem to me that because it is not possible to have a part
that is half SMD and half thru hole one would be able to right click on the part
and substitute the whole foot print, using replace part, if the pin outs are the same.

Currenly replacing a part changes the part only. We will consider this action in context of replacing whole component.
