Configuring Multi-board Schematic Circle Object Properties in Altium Designer

Created: October 18, 2019 | Updated: April 10, 2021

Parent page: Circle

Multi-board object properties are definable options that specify the visual style, content and behavior of the placed object. The property settings for each type of object are defined in two different ways:

  • Pre-placement settings – most Circle object properties, or those that can logically be pre-defined, are available as editable default settings on the Multi-board Schematic - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog (access from the  button at the top-right of the design space). Select the object in the Primitive List to reveal its options on the right.
  • Post-placement settings – all Circle object properties are available for editing in the Properties panel when a placed Circle is selected in the design space.
