Quick Question, I didn't realize when I placed the board outline that it was so close to the edge of my region. I am now trying to move a potentiometer footprint that hangs over the edge but I can not move it as far as I need.
How can I move everything up in my workspace?
The work space is easy to change if for some reason your design is right up to the edge of the work space. Just go to "setup/Design Parameter Editor, Pick the "design tab" then type into the extents fields to change your design window. Make the width bigger than what you have currently. Example lets say you had W500xH500 in mm. Change it to W1000xH1000. Then change the Left X and the Lower Y to exactly half of the W and H. So you should type in -500X Y-500. then Hit OK. Your entire design will re-center with room to spare.
To move your entire design you just need to turn on the correct filter switches and have all your layers turned on (top,bottom, internals).
1. Make sure you are in the general edit mode.
2. Then turn on Symbols, Pins, Vias, Clines and shapes.
3. Window around your design to select everything. Right click them move.
To move to a precise location - at the bottom of your screen, switch "A" to "R" Then after right click move and everything is highlighted. Go to the option window. Make "Point" set to "User pick" pick the highlighted items again to re-position the mouse to a point of your own choosing. Notice the design coordinates change to zero/zero just prior to moving you design. Hit the "P" and type in the new location to drop your design to the precise location.
