A Draftsman Board Drill Drawing View is an automated graphic composite of the active PCB project's board outline and drill holes. The view is rendered with definable symbols that correspond to hole types and also includes any specified drill layer pairs.
The view's drawing representation and content settings are all configurable in the Properties panel.
Board Drill Drawing Views are available for placement in the Draftsman Editor as follows:
After launching the command, drawing data is retrieved from the source PCB file, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and the rendered Drill Drawing View is attached to the cursor. Move the cursor to the desired position then click to confirm the placement.
Both the position and size of placed Drill Drawing View may be graphically modified.
A selected Drill Drawing View will show a node handle at the top right of the selection outline, which can be dragged to a new location to modify the view's size. To move an Drill Drawing View, drag and drop it to a new location.
