A Module Entry is a graphical object that is automatically or manually placed on Module in a Multi-board Design document to represent a connection point (such as a header or plug/socket) of a child PCB project design. Module Entries are connected to entries on other Modules using virtual connections, such as Wires.
Module Entries are available for placement in the multi-board schematic editor as follows:
After launching the command, the Module Entry graphic will be attached to the cursor, ready for placement. Then:
This method of editing allows a placed Module Entry object to be selected in the design space and graphically edit its location.
Select a Module by clicking on its graphic then drag the Entry around the Module's perimeter to a suitable location. Note that the Entry name can be independently dragged to a different position.
Properties page: Module Entry Properties
The non-graphical method of editing a Module Entry is available in the Multi-board Properties panel, which provides editable property fields for the item that is currently selected in the design space.
To open the Properties panel and access the properties of a placed Module Entry:
If the Properties panel is already active, click on the Module Entry to access its properties in the panel.
The Properties panel supports multiple object editing where the property settings that are identical in all currently selected objects may be modified. When multiples of the same object type are selected, a Properties panel field entry can be edited for all selected objects. If values of a property are different for objects in the selection, the appropriate field will be shown as an asterisk (*); a new property value will be applied to all selected objects.
