A placed Circle

Summary

A Circle is a graphic object that can be placed on a Multi-board Design schematic document and filled with a specified solid color.

Availability

Circles are available for placement in the multi-board schematic editor as follows:

  • Choose the Place » Circle command from the main menu.
  • Click the  button in the graphic objects drop-down on the Active Bar located at the top of the design space. Click and hold an Active Bar button to access other related commands. Once a command has been used, it will become the topmost item on that section of the Active Bar.
  • Right-click in the drawing design space then select Place » Circle from the context menu.

Placement

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a cross-hair and the editor will enter circle placement mode. Placement is made by performing the following actions:

  1. Click to define the center position of the circle.
  2. Move the cursor to adjust the radius of the circle then click again to complete placement.
  3. Continue placing further circles or right-click or press Esc to exit the placement mode.
The default settings for the Circle object are available in the Multi-board Schematic - Defaults page of the Preferences dialog.

Graphical Editing

This method of editing allows a placed circle object to be selected in the design space and graphically edit its radius or location.

Select a Circle by clicking on its fill or outline. Once selected, editing handles/nodes are available at its center and perimeter.
