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 Region 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 workspace). Select the object in the Primitive List to reveal its options on the right.
Post-placement settings – all Region object properties are available for editing in the Properties panel when a placed Region is selected in the workspace.
The Region object default settings in the Preferences dialog, and the Region mode of the Properties panel
In the below properties listing, options that are not available as default settings in the Preferences dialog are noted as 'Properties panel only'.
Geometry (Properties panel only)
Geometry table – A tabular list of each vertex (node) in the Region shape, in their placed order including their (X/Y) locations and associated line arc angles. Each entry may be manually edited to update the rendered Region shape. The table's Arc Angle column entries (if applicable) define the curve radius of the vertex connection line – from that node to the next. When edited, the resulting curve shape corresponds to the arc segment of an equivalent circle through the specified angle. Enter a negative angle to invert the arc curve.
Add button – click to duplicate the selected vertex entry, which will insert a new vertex (in the same location) into the Region shape.
Delete button () – click to remove the selected vertex from the Region shape.
Line – displays and sets the outline weight/style/color.
Line weight – the line thickness of the Region outline. Use the drop-down menu to choose from a range of line weight presets.
Line pattern – the pattern line style of the Region outline. Use the drop-down menu to choose from a range of line style presets.
Line color () – click to open the outline color selector drop-down, which includes options for preset colors, HEX/RGB color values and the graphic selection of color shades.
Fill button () – click to open the fill color selector drop-down, which includes options for preset colors, HEX/RGB color values and the graphic selection of color shades.
