I have two sites where I use PCB Editor. One at a customer / employer and the other at my home office. Yesterday I took a file from the customer to my home office to continue working on it last night. When I opened the file to continue placing parts, placement edit would not work, meaning that I could not move any parts or text I had to use the "move" command to place the parts.
This is a small board with maybe 30 parts. normally I would select placement edit and have only "symbols" checked in the find filter. This would allow me to select and move any part on the board. It was not working this way. With placement edit selected as well as "symbol" when I selected a part, the part would highlight but I could not move it. The only way to move the part was to use the "move" command which is very time consuming.
This function worked just fine earlier in the week (and on several other boards) and it works just fine at the customers location. (same versions of Editor installed at both locations)
So the usual question......... What am I doing wrong?
In reply to oldmouldy:
Not working meaning that I select placement edit, I select "symbol" in the find window, I click on the part I want to move, the part highlights but I can not move it.
Mind you, I just finished up a board last week with 700 parts on it and did not have any issues with placing / moving any part using this method.
In reply to TH Designs:
Placement edit shows in lower right window.
The only message I get is "last pick xxxx......"
I can move the part by using the "move" option vs placement edit which makes me think it is not a issue of the part being fixed.
To move a part on place app mode, you either to select and drag or double click and move. The single click just highlights.
You should also verify that the symbol is enabled in the Find Filter.
oldmouldyOK, last hope is that it's the single-click that's not enabled. Get into Placement Edit, right-click in the background canvas, Customize>Enable Single Click Execution, now the symbols in the canvas should get stuck to the mouse when you click on them.
I'm baaack....... Couldn't log into the Forum for several days. Forum tech support couldn't figure out why............. For some reason I'm able to log in today. Time to play catch up.
No earth shattering conclusions. After working on the board for a few days on a different computer, I took it back to my home office and I can now move and place parts like always. I didn't change any settings. The only thing I can point to would be a computer power down and power up cycle.
Another anomaly solved, but not understood.............
Thanks for the suggestions and assistance guys!
