Parent page: Region Keepout
PCB editor 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 Keepout object properties, or those that can logically be pre-defined, are available as editable default settings on the PCB Editor - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog (accessed 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 Region Keepout object properties are available for editing in the Properties panel when a placed Region Keepout is selected in the design space.
This region is used to modify the individual vertices of the currently selected region object. You can modify the locations of existing vertices, add new vertices or remove them as required. Arc connections between vertex points can be defined, and support is also provided for exporting vertex information to and importing from a CSV-formatted file.
Use this region to select which object types will be restricted by the Keepout. Deselecting an object type will cause the Keepout to allow transgressions by that type of object (not kept out) by not imposing the applicable Clearance Rule. Choices include:
