Schematic Editor object properties are definable options that specify the visual style, content and behavior of the placed object.
The property settings for each type of object are defined in two different ways:
Pre-placement settings – most Parameter Set object properties, or those that can logically be pre-defined, are available as editable default settings on the Schematic - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog (accessed from the button at the top-right of the workspace). Select the object in the Primitive List to reveal its options on the right.
Post-placement settings – all Parameter Set object properties are available for editing in the Properties panel when a Parameter Set is selected in the workspace.
The Parameter Set default settings in the Preferences dialog and the Parameter Set and Differential Pair modes of the Properties panel
In the below properties listing, options that are not available as default settings in the Preferences dialog are noted as "Properties panel only".
Location (Properties panel only)
X (first field) - the current X (horizontal) coordinate of the reference point of the object, relative to the current workspace origin. Edit to change the X position of the object. The value can be entered in either metric or imperial; include the units when entering a value whose units are not the current default.
Y (second field) - The current Y (vertical) coordinate of the reference point of the object, relative to the current origin. Edit to change the Y position of the object. The value can be entered in either metric or imperial; include the units when entering a value whose units are not the current default.
Rotation - use the drop-down to select the rotation. Choices are: 0 Degrees, 90 Degrees, 180 Degrees, and 270 Degrees.
