    Move segment OrCAD PCB 16.6???? Reply
    Hello!!!
    I have a simple question.... i would like to move a segment of a polygon without redraw the entire poligon.
    For example if i have a square board outline i would like move one side in order to make a rectangle ( i don't wont move the vertex but the entire side ).
    Can someone help me?
    Thank's

    Shape - Select Shape or Void then LMB (left mouse button the outline) you will now see drag handles on the corners, either drag a corner or LMB on the segment you wish to move and reposition accordingly. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhDeRg64vRY

    Hi Steve!!

    Thank you for reply!!!

    Can i do the same geometric trasformation of the shape also on the board outline ( for exemple move only a side of the board outline without redraw all) ????

    Thank's

    Yes - as long as the board outline is a closed shape. If you hover over it does the whole outline highlight ?

    I did as you suggested.....with the command Shape ->Compose Shape i have transformed the board outline in shape. After this i can move all the side correctly!!!

    Thank you very much Steve!!!
