RESIZING THE BOARD

 

Alright, by this point you’ve got all of your components placed. Did you find it creative, or maybe kind of awkward the first time around? Keep doing it again and again until you get into a component placement flow; then you’ll understand the magic. At this point, all of the hard work is done, great job! Let’s now finish up by defining the dimensions of your board layout with these steps:

  1. Select the Move move-icon tool on the left-hand side of your interface.

  2. Left-click on the top-right corner of your PCB layout outline, then drag that point towards your components to adjust the size of the corner.

  3. Left-click again to finalize that corner, then go ahead and repeat this process for the bottom-right and top-left corners.

Once complete, you should have a much smaller PCB layout outline that nestles all of your components together in an efficient and compact package like the one we have below:
