Altium won't let me move object to negative coordinates

Electrical Engineering Asked by mFeinstein on December 22, 2020

I have imported a BRD document from Orcad to Altium. The origin is on the top left of the board and I can’t move things or draw traces below or to the left of the origin, that is, negative coordinate levels, Altium just locks the mouse pointer and it doesn’t move.

Is this a configuration inside Altium or is it a bug?

One Answer

There is a limit to how far you can go negative. Ctrl-A to select all and cut and paste in the positive quadrant, then move the origin to where you want it. Edit->Origin->Set

It also gets messy sometimes when parts end up way off the page.
