Parent page: Multi-board Schematic Objects
A Region is a closed shape object that can be placed on a multi-board Design document to indicate a specific area in the schematic. The Region object shape can include angle-based curved lines.
Regions are available for placement in the multi-board schematic editor as follows:
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and the editor will enter Region placement mode. Placement is made by performing the following sequence of actions:
Straight lines will be drawn between each vertex as they are placed, however the Shift+Spacebar shortcut can be used to cycle through other line options such as a 90° corner, 45° corner, curved 90° corner or curved 45° corner – this applies to the line segment between the cursor and the previously placed vertex. Once an option is selected, use the Spacebar to toggle the direction of the corner.
This method of editing allows a placed Region object to be selected in the design space and graphically edit its size, shape or location.
Select a Region by clicking on its fill or outline. Once selected, editing handles/nodes are available at each of the shape's verticess.
Properties page: Region Properties
The non-graphical method of editing a Region is available in the multi-board Properties panel, which provides editable property fields for the item that is currently selected in the design space.
