Applied Parameters: Direction=Up|BigSteps=False

Summary

This feature enables you to use the keyboard to move the cursor upwards in the current document workspace, in increments of one snap grid unit.

Access

This command is accessed from the Schematic Editor, and Schematic Library Editor. With the cursor within the main design window, simply use the Up Arrow keyboard shortcut.

Use

After launching the command, the cursor will be moved upward in the workspace by one snap grid unit.

Use the command repeatedly to move the cursor further upward.

Tips

  1. One snap grid unit is defined as being the value specified in the Grid field, in the General section of the Properties panel - which shows the options for the active schematic document when no objects are currently selected in the design workspace.
