Parent page: IEEE Symbol

Schematic Library 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 the following way:

  • Post-placement settings – all IEEE Symbol object properties are available for editing in the IEEE Symbol dialog and the Properties panel when a placed IEEE Symbol is selected in the Schematic Library design space.


While the options are the same in the dialog and the panel, the order and placement of the options may differ slightly. 


  • (X/Y) - the current X (horizontal) and Y (vertical) coordinate of the reference point of the object, relative to the current design space origin. Edit to change the X and Y position of the object. The values 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. 


  • Symbol - defines the graphical IEEE symbol. Select a symbol from the drop-down list.
  • Size - the current size of the IEEE symbol. The default size is 10 DXP Default Units (100mil). Increase or decrease this value to make the symbol bigger or smaller. Entering a negative value results in the symbol appearing as if rotated by 180 degrees.
  • Line - the width of the line used to draw the outline of the symbol.
