Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to delete one or more existing split lines from the active board. Split lines enable you to split the single default board region for a board into multiple regions and subsequently assign a unique layer stack to each of those regions. This ability to assign different layer stacks to different regions of a board facilitates rigid-flex design.
This command is accessed from the PCB Editor in Board Planning Mode by choosing the Design » Delete Split Line command from the main menus.
First ensure that the PCB Editor is placed in Board Planning Mode. This can be done by choosing the View » Board Planning Mode command from the main menus, or by using the 1 keyboard shortcut.
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and you will enter split line deletion mode. To delete a split line, position the cursor over one of its ends (its editing handles) then click or press Enter. Continue removing further split lines in this way or right-click or press Esc to exit split line deletion mode.
- A split line can also be removed by clicking and holding one of its end points then pressing the Delete key. Alternatively, click, hold and move an endpoint to a point around the board shape that results in the split turning red (signifying an invalid split), then release.
- Removal can be undone using the Undo command.
