The following pre-packaged resource, derived from this base command, is available:


Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command enables you to move any object in the current document.

Access

This command can be accessed from the Schematic Editor and the Schematic Library Editor by:

  • Choosing the Edit » Move » Move command from the main menus.
  • Locating and using the Move command on the Active Bar.
If the command has been recently used from the Active Bar, it will become the active/visible button. Where other commands are available, this is indicated by a triangle at the bottom-right corner of the button. Click and hold on the active button to access a menu of all associated commands for that grouping.
Selected objects can be 'nudged' by one grid (according to the current snap grid value) by pressing the Ctrl+Arrow keys. Selected objects also can be 'nudged' by 10 grids (snap grid value by a factor of 10) by pressing the Ctrl+Shift+arrow keys.

Use

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a crosshair and you will enter movement mode. Movement is made by performing the following sequence of actions:

  1. Position the cursor over the object in the design that is to be moved then click or press Enter.
  2. The object will appear floating on the cursor. Move the object to the required position then click or press Enter to effect placement.
  3. Continue moving further objects, or right-click or press Esc to exit.

Additional actions (where applicable) that can be performed during movement – while the object is still floating on the cursor - are:

  • Press the Alt key to constrain the direction of movement to the horizontal or vertical axis depending on the initial direction of movement.
  • Press the Spacebar to rotate the object counterclockwise or Shift+Spacebar for clockwise rotation. Rotation is in increments of 90°.
  • Press the X or Y keys to mirror the object along the X-axis or Y-axis respectively.

Tips

  1. Connectivity is not maintained when using this feature. If connectivity needs to be maintained during a move, use one of the Drag commands instead.
  2. If an object is locked and you try to move it, you will be prompted with a confirmation dialog alerting you to this and asking if you want to continue.
  3. Selected objects can be 'nudged' by small amounts (according to the current snap grid value) by pressing the arrow keys while holding down the Ctrl key.
  4. Selected objects can also be 'nudged' by large amounts (snap grid value by a factor of 10) by pressing the arrow keys while holding down the Ctrl and Shift keys together.
  5. 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. When using this command to reposition an object, the object will retain its original order in the stack.
