How can I see what PCB shape/footprint a schematic component has? You'd think it would be part of the info in the "Properties" tab and it is but only in name form, which is fine for your bog-standard SOT-23's etc but some non-standard footprints and some components where the package properties were perhaps not entered fully or correctly are trickier to discover even though they import fine into the destination PCB. Even some way to trace it back to the source library and find it from there would be helpful?

Right click on the schematic component then from the drop down menu select "Edit Component in Library". This will open up both a schematic symbol and a corresponding pcb component windows.
