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

Applied Parameters: None


This command is used to round up the internal coordinates of objects, to counter any rounding effect when switching from Imperial to Metric measurement units mid-design. The overall result is that the internal coordinates of all design objects will be as they would have been, had you started designing with metric units from the outset.


This command is accessed from the Schematic Editor by choosing the Tools » Convert » Round coordinates of objects command, from the main menus.


After launching the command, the Rounding coordinates of objects dialog will appear. Use this dialog to define which documents the rounding process will be applied to - either the current document only, all schematic documents in the current (active) project, or all open schematic documents (irrespective of the project they belong to) - then click OK. An information dialog will summarize how many objects, on how many documents, had their coordinates rounded.
