Applied Parameters: None
This feature allows you to change the color used for one or more selected design objects, where applicable.
This feature is available in the Schematic Editor only from the Formatting toolbar.
Access the Color feature from the Formatting toolbar.
First, ensure that the object whose color you wish to change is selected in the main design window.
Use the drop-down to choose from a list of predefined (basic) colors that you wish to apply to the selected design object. As you scroll through and choose different colors from the list, the corresponding color for the object will change accordingly.
Click the button to the right of the drop-down to open the Choose Color dialog from where you can choose from a further range of standard colors or create your own customized color.
- This feature will only be available if applicable to the currently selected object. The color that this formatting feature applies to depends on the design object to which the change is being applied. For example, border color, text color and line color are all changed using this feature.
- When multiple design objects are selected, only those formatting features common to all will be available for use. Therefore, in order to effectively change the formatting attribute of a group of selected objects, make sure they all support that formatting feature.
