Line Properties

Modified by Susan Riege on Mar 16, 2018

Parent page: Line

Multi-board 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 Line object properties, or those that can logically be pre-defined, are available as editable default settings on the Multi-board 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 Line object properties are available for editing in the Properties panel when a placed Line is selected in the workspace.

     The Line object default settings in the Preferences dialog, and the Line 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)

  • Start (X/Y) – the X-axis and Y-axis values of the Line's start point (the first point placed).
  • End (X/Y) – the X-axis and Y-axis values of the Line's end point.

Graphical

  • Line – displays and sets the Line graphic's weight/style/color
    • Line weight – the line thickness. Use the drop-down menu to choose from a range of line weight presets.
    • Line pattern – the pattern style applied to Line. Use the drop-down menu to choose from a range of line style presets.
    • Line color () – click to open the Line color selector drop-down, which includes options for preset colors, HEX/RGB color values and the graphic selection of color shades.
