Quick question. I'm working on my first design with Pulsonix. I had placed what I thought was all of the components on the PCB. I then realized there were still components in the schematic that just didn't have footprints assigned to them. There was no indication in the schem tool or in the PCB tool that there are still components that haven't made it over into the PCB tool (even after running DRCs in both). What is the best way to ensure that every component in the schem has a footprint assigned and has made it into the PCB tool?

If it's a normal part then you should see a warning dialogue on synchronisation in the PCB Editor that footprints don't exist for the part.
If you are not seeing the warning then it may be the case that these parts have been defined as schematic only parts.
