A few variations of the Edit PCB Rule (From Schematic) dialog: Max-Min Width, Routing Layers, Solder-Mask Expansion, and Clearance Rules.
The Edit PCB Rule (From Schematic) dialog allows you to define the constraints for a PCB rule from a schematic document.
The dialog is accessed by completing the following steps:
In a schematic, click on a placed Parameter Set Directive (or click Place » Directives » Parameter Set then press Tab) to open the Properties panel in Parameter Set mode.
Double-click the desired rule in the Rules region of the panel (or click the Add button and add a rule in the resulting Choose Design Rule Type dialog).
The specific controls of this dialog are dependent upon the selected design rule. For detailed information regarding PCB Design Rules and constraints, click here.
