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 Round Rectangle 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 (access 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 Round Rectangle object properties are available for editing in the Properties panel when a placed Round Rectangle is selected in the workspace.

               The Round Rectangle default settings in the Preferences dialog and the Round Rectangle mode of the Properties panel

In the below properties listing, options that are not available as default settings in the Preferences dialog are noted as "Properties panel only".

Location (Properties panel only)

  • (X/Y) - the X (horizontal) coordinate and Y (vertical) coordinate of the object. 


  • Width - the width of the rectangular shape. 
  • Height - the height of the rectangular shape. 
  • Corner X-Radius - the curvature of the rectangle's corners in the horizontal plane.
  • Corner Y-Radius - the curvature of the rectangle's corners in the vertical plane.
