Applied Parameters: None

Summary

This command is used to place a rectangle object onto the active document. A rectangle is a standard element that can be placed on any layer.

For detailed information about this object type, see Rectangle.

Access

This command is accessed from the PCB editor by choosing the Place » Rectangle command from the main menus.

Use

After launching the command, a cursor will appear floating in the design space. Position the cursor in a suitable location then click or press Enter to place the first corner then move the cursor to define the size then click or press Enter to complete placement..

At any time during placement, press the Tab key to access the Properties panel from where properties for the rectangle can be changed on-the-fly. Pressing Tab pauses placement, allowing you to interact with the panel (or other area of the software) directly. To resume, click the pause symbol that appears in the design space.

While attributes can be modified during placement (Tab to open the Properties panel), keep in mind that these will become the default settings for further placement unless the Permanent option on the PCB Editor – Defaults page of the Preferences dialog is enabled. When this option is enabled, changes made will affect only the object being placed and subsequent objects placed during the same placement session.
