This tab allows you to change the name or properties of a single selected Design Component Anchor, or to define a single selected line entity as the anchor of the current design component.
Design Component Anchor
Is a design component anchor
Switch this option on to define the selected line as the anchor for this design component.
Enter a unique name for this anchor.
Enter the help message that will be displayed when using this anchor to place the Component in a project.
From the pulldown list choose one of the following:
Line length to line length
Mid point snaps to any point
Line start snaps to any point
Mid point snaps to point on line
Non-interactive snap to overlapping line
Enter a variable name here. When the component is added the project's variable list will be searched for this name. If a matching variable is found then its value will be overridden by the anchor entity length.
Allow 2 points
Rather than positioning the Component using an existing entity in the project, you can switch this option on. You will then be prompted to identify two points that will be used as the end points of an imaginary line onto which the Component will be positioned. Switching this option on disables the Remove destination entity and Stitch destination entity options, as these becomes meaningless.
Enter the help message to display when asking for the first of the two points mentioned above.
Enter the help message to display when asking for the second of these points.
Remove this entity
Switch this option on if you want to remove the anchor entity after the Component has been added.
Remove destination entity
Switch this option on if you want to remove the entity in the project to which the Component is anchored. Switching this option on disables the Stitch destination entity option, as these two options are mutually exclusive.
Stitch destination entity
Switch this option on to split the destination entity at the end-points of the anchor entity and then remove the central piece of the destination entity. Switching this option on disables the Remove destination entity option, as these two options are mutually exclusive.
Allow part rotation
Switch this option on if the component can be rotated before being placed in the project.
Allow part mirroring
Switch this option on if the component can be mirrored before being placed in the project.
