Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to move one object behind another object in a stack of overlapping objects. The Schematic Editor/Schematic Library Editor automatically stacks objects, text and graphics in layers. Each object is on a different layer depending on the creation order and therefore it is possible to place objects so that they overlap. The objects created or added recently are always on the top layer.
This command can be accessed from the Schematic Editor and the Schematic Library Editor, by:
- Choosing the Edit » Move » Send To Back Of command, from the main menus.
- Locating and using the Send To Back Of command () on the Active Bar.
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a crosshair and you will be prompted to choose an object to move. Simply position the cursor over the object that you want to move and click or press Enter. You will then be prompted to choose an object that you wish to move the first object behind. Position the cursor over this 'target' object and click or press Enter. The first object will be moved behind this target object, without changing its x or y coordinates.
Continue moving further objects, or right-click, or press Esc, to exit movement mode.
- When selecting the initial or target objects, if you click on an area where multiple possible objects overlap, a pop-up will appear containing all overlapping objects from which to make your choice.
