Boundaries are used to enclose
groups of objects, and are parts of zones. In the illustration below the
user has drawn a square around some lines and components. That square can
be designated a boundary and made part of a zone.
Use one of the Sketcher functions
to enclose the objects that you want to include in the boundary.
The objects must be fully enclosed
within the boundary. You will not be able to create the boundary if there
is a gap in it.
Click on the
Define Zone Boundaries button
. The Add Boundary to
Zone dialog box will display, listing all the available zones.
Filter/Sort button if you want to filter the available zones.
If you want to create a new zone click the New ID
Select the zone under which you
want your boundary and then select each line that constitutes the boundary.
In the illustration above you would select all four lines that make up the
square. The lines will change color as you select them.
You can select any line to begin
with. But after that each line you select must be connected to an already
selected line. In the illustration above you cannot select the lower
horizontal line and then the upper horizontal line. If you select a
horizontal line you must select one of the vertical lines after that.
The boundary will become a part of the zone.
