An object is an element of your design such as a trace, pad, or component footprint. An object property is some aspect of the object, such as it's name, position, dimensions or rotation angle. You can view and edit the properties of an object. For example you might want to view or change the width property of a trace.
- Select the object.
- Review the Property Bar.
- If desired enter a new value to change a property.
If several objects are selected, the Property Bar will not show values of those properties that differ between selected objects. For example, if you select several pads of different sizes, the property bar will not show the size property.
You can edit each property manually - see Property Bar.
You can change some object properties via the context menu that appears when the right mouse button is clicked.
You can select all objects of the same type as a selected object. For example, to select all pads, right click on one pad and choose "Select | Select all ...".
You can select all traces and pads connected to a selected copper layer object. For example, you might want to select all objects electrically connected to U3 pin 7. To select all connected objects, right click on the object and choose "Highlight | All connected traces and pads".
