Symptoms
    PCB footprints are not correct when forward annotating from Designer
    PCB decals are wrong when updating design from schematic

 

Solution:

In PADS Layout go to Tools > DX Designer and select the Preferences tab.
Place a check mark in the box for "Compare Part Decals".
With this box checked the comparison between the schematic and PCB design will look at the PCB footprints assigned and update any applicable parts in the design.
