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 Probe object properties, or those that can logically be pre-defined, are available as editable default settings on the Schematic - Defaults 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 Probe object properties are available for editing in the Properties panel when a placed Probe is selected in the workspace.
The Probe default settings in the Preferences dialog and the Probe mode 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".

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.
