Design File Settings Dialog

Used to change design file-specific settings.

You can access this dialog from the following:
  • Ribbon: File > Settings > File > Design File Settings

The controls are divided into categories, each of which corresponds to a selection in the Category list box.

Category Lists the logical categories into which settings are grouped. Selecting a category causes the appropriate controls to be displayed to the right of the category list.
Focus Item Description Provides information on the field in which the pointer is placed.
CAUTION: If working units are changed, an alert box cautions that working units should not be changed after elements are placed and gives you the opportunity to cancel changes. Maintaining consistent working units in a design lets you draw "full size" elements without regard for plotting scale. (You can infinitely adjust plotting scale when creating a plot.)
