Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to run the Hole Size Editor dialog, from where you can edit and update the hole sizes for pads and/or vias used in the current PCB document.

This is considered a legacy tool of the software. It has been superseded by the Hole Size Editor - a configured mode of the PCB panel.


This command is accessed from the PCB Editor by choosing the Tools » Legacy Tools » Legacy Hole Size Editor command, from the main menus.


After launching the command, the dialog will appear with a list of the hole sizes used for pads and/or vias. The sizes can be displayed in either metric or imperial units. For each hole size you select in the list, a summary of the associated pads and vias is displayed.

To edit a hole size, select the entry in the list and click the Edit button (or double-click on the entry). The Edit Hole Size dialog will appear, from where you can enter the new value. Click OK and the new hole size will appear back in the list.

When the new/modified hole sizes have been entered as required, click OK - all associated pads and/or vias on the PCB document will be updated with the new hole sizes.
