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.
