To minimize some of the confusion in the Schematic Editor when using the Replace Part and Update From Library tools, some of the related options need to be renamed to better reflect their functions. See this thread http://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11234 for a typical example of the confusion that results from the currently ambiguous option names and the absence of thorough explanations and definitions in the help files. What follows is a list of some recommended option name changes that I believe would help reduce some of the confusion...

Replace Part
Current Component -----------> Current Part
Similar Name Components ---> Parts with Same Name
Selected Components ---------> Selected Parts with Same Name

Update From Library
Selected Parts ------------------> Selected Parts (no change)
Selected Components ---------> Selected Components (no change)
Similar Name Components ---> Components with Same Name
