Schematic components not showing up in PCB document


I recently started using Fusion 360 electronics for a project, and watched some videos on the schematic design and PCB document. It seemed easy enough to go from schematic to PCB; merely with the press of a button (Switch to PCB document), and the components would be found outside to corner of the PCB. However, after I build a circuit and click switch to PCB document, I switch over but can't seem to find my components anywhere. Is there some setting that I need to configure so that it automatically displays the components I'm working on?

Hi @msweinhold 

I hope you are doing well! I guess you may use the ngspice library to create schematic for Simulation.

For those devices in ngspice library, they have no footprint compared with devices in other libraries. Then no footprints will show up in PCB document. You can have a look at the screenshots to see the difference.

The device in ngspice library :
