Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to generate an XY coordinate report for selected objects in the current document.
This command is accessed from the CAMtastic Editor by choosing the Reports » X:Y Coordinates command from the main menus.
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a square and you will be prompted to select objects to include in the report. Simply position the cursor over an existing object, and click. Clicking away from an object allows you to drag a selection area, for including multiple objects in the selection. Selection is cumulative.
Once all required objects have been selected, right-click. The report, X-Y List.rpt, will be generated and opened as the active document in the main design window. The report lists each point, line, and arc included in the selection, in terms of XY coordinates within the document.
- For arcs, additional information is included in the report, in terms of start angle, end angle, radius, and bulge.
- The report is generated and saved automatically in the \Users\<ProfileName>\AppData\Roaming\Altium\Altium NEXUS <GUID>\CAMtastic folder of your software installation. The report will appear in the Projects panel as a free document.
- All measurement information uses the current units for the workspace - either inches or millimeters. Units can be changed either from the CAMtastic panel, or the CAM Editor - Drawing Modes page of the Preferences dialog.
- Generating a new report will overwrite an existing report of the same name without warning.
