Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to flip one or more selected modules along the X-axis.

For a high-level look at multi-board design within Altium NEXUS, see Designing Systems with Multiple Boards.

Access

With at least one module object selected, this command can be accessed from the Multi-board Schematic Editor by:

  • Choosing the Edit » Move » Flip Selected Item Along X command from the main menus.
  • Using the X keyboard shortcut.
The shortcut can also be used while moving the selected module(s).

Use

First, ensure that all modules to be flipped are selected in the main design workspace.

After launching the command, what happens next is determined by the number of modules selected:

  • Single Module - the entries associated with the module will be swapped to the opposite side of the module (in the horizontal plane) - those on the left will be repositioned on the right and vice-versa.
  • Multiple Modules - the modules will be flipped about an imaginary vertical line which is located mid-way between the bounding extents of the modules in the selection. The entries associated with each module will be swapped to the opposite side of the module (in the horizontal plane) - those on the left will be repositioned on the right and vice-versa.

The Type of entries is not altered.
