The following pre-packaged resources, derived from this base command, are available:


Applied Parameters: Size=1Mil

Summary

This command is used to set the X (horizontal) and Y (vertical) step values - for the default Global Board Snap Grid - simultaneously to 1mil. These values together define the Snap Grid for manual movement and placement in the current document. The cursor automatically snaps to this grid, positioning the reference point of the object being placed onto the nearest grid location.

Access

This command is accessed from the PCB Editor, and PCB Library Editor, by:

  • Using the G keyboard shortcut, then choosing the 1 Mil command from the pop-up menu.
  • PCB Editor - choosing the 1 Mil entry on the Grids drop-down () of the Utilities toolbar.
  • PCB Library Editor - choosing the 1 Mil entry on the Grids drop-down () of the PCB Lib Standard toolbar.

Use

After launching the command, the value for both the Step X and Step Y properties of the default Global Board Snap Grid will be set to 1mil, and the grid will update accordingly in the workspace.

Tips

  1. This command only affects the default snap grid for the board, and not any custom grids (cartesian and polar) that you may have defined.
  2. If the Step X and Step Y properties were previously unlinked, this command will re-link the two.
  3. If you are currently using metric units for your board, the equivalent converted value in mm will be used.
  4. The step values can be changed as required for the default snap grid, by editing the grid through the Grid Manager section of the Properties panel (when no objects are currently selected in the design workspace). Double-click the entry for the Global Board Snap Grid (or select and click the Properties button), and in the subsequent Cartesian Grid Editor dialog, make changes to the properties in the Steps region.
