Schematic 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 Ellipse object properties, or those that can logically be pre-defined, are available as editable default settings on the Schematic - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog (accessed 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 Ellipse object properties are available for editing in the Properties panel when a placed Ellipse is selected in the workspace.

The value can be entered in either metric or imperial; include the units when entering a value whose units are not the current default.
