Applied Parameters: Symbol=Dot

Summary

This command is used to place the IEEE Dot symbol on the current document. IEEE symbols are used for representing logic functions or devices. These symbols enable users to understand the logic characteristics of these functions or devices, without requiring specific knowledge of their internal characteristics.

For detailed information about this object type, see IEEE Symbol.

Access

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

  • Choosing the Place » IEEE Symbols » Dot command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button on the IEEE Symbols drop-down () of the Utilities toolbar.
  • Right-clicking in the workspace and choosing the Place » IEEE Symbols » Dot command from the context menu.

Use

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and you will enter IEEE symbol placement mode. The IEEE Dot symbol will appear "floating" on the cursor.

  1. Position the object and click or press Enter to effect placement.
  2. Continue placing further IEEE Dot symbols, or right-click or press Esc to exit placement mode.

Additional actions that can be performed during placement are:

  • Press the Tab key to access the Properties panel, from where properties for the symbol can be changed on-the-fly.
Pressing Tab pauses placement, allowing you to interact with the panel (or other area of the software) directly. To resume, click the pause symbol that appears over the workspace.
  • 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 symbol counterclockwise or Shift+Spacebar for clockwise rotation. Rotation is in steps of 90°.
  • Press the X or Y keys to mirror the symbol along the X-axis or Y-axis respectively.
  • Press the + or - keys (on the numeric keypad) to enlarge or shrink the symbol.

Tips

  1. While attributes can be modified during placement (Tab to bring up the Properties panel), bear in mind that these will become the default settings for further placement unless the Permanent option on the Schematic - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog is enabled. When this option is enabled, changes made will affect only the object being placed and subsequent objects placed during the same placement session.

Summary

This command is used to place the IEEE Open Output symbol on the current document. IEEE symbols are used for representing logic functions or devices. These symbols enable users to understand the logic characteristics of these functions or devices, without requiring specific knowledge of their internal characteristics.

For detailed information about this object type, see IEEE Symbol.

Access

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

  • Choosing the Place » IEEE Symbols » Open Output command from the main menus.
  • Clicking the  button on the IEEE Symbols drop-down () of the Utilities toolbar.
  • Right-clicking in the workspace and choosing the Place » IEEE Symbols » Open Output command from the context menu.

Use

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and you will enter IEEE symbol placement mode. The IEEE Open Output symbol will appear "floating" on the cursor.

  1. Position the object and click or press Enter to effect placement.
  2. Continue placing further IEEE Open Output symbols, or right-click or press Esc to exit placement mode.

Additional actions that can be performed during placement are:

  • Press the Tab key to access the Properties panel, from where properties for the symbol can be changed on-the-fly.
Pressing Tab pauses placement, allowing you to interact with the panel (or other area of the software) directly. To resume, click the pause symbol that appears over the workspace.
  • 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 symbol counterclockwise or Shift+Spacebar for clockwise rotation. Rotation is in steps of 90°.
  • Press the X or Y keys to mirror the symbol along the X-axis or Y-axis respectively.
  • Press the + or - keys (on the numeric keypad) to enlarge or shrink the symbol.

Tips

  1. While attributes can be modified during placement (Tab to bring up the Properties panel), bear in mind that these will become the default settings for further placement unless the Permanent option on the Schematic - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog is enabled. When this option is enabled, changes made will affect only the object being placed and subsequent objects placed during the same placement session.
