Entity Modify

Entity provides many basic functions, such as copy, shift, and rotate.

Copy

  1. Select the entities that you want to copy.
  2. Click copy and click the left mouse button to select the base position.
  3. Left-click the mouse to select the location where you want to move, the pop-up dialog box will be displayed.

Settings

  • Delete Original: Remove the original entity and keep the moved entity.
  • Keep Original: Keep both the original entity and the moved entity.
  • Multiple Copies: Keep the original entity, copy multiple entities, set the number of copies, and the multiple entities will be shifted with the same offset increment.

Rotate

Rotate entities to get one copy or multiple copies at different rotation angles. In addition, multiple entities can be created with the same angle increment. The steps are shown below.

  1. Select the entities that you want to rotate.
  2. Click rotate and click the left mouse button to select the position of rotation center.
  3. Left-click the mouse to determine the final angle position of the rotation, the pop-up dialog box will be displayed.

  • Keep Original: Keep both the original entity and the moved entity.
  • Multiple Copies: Keep the original entity, copy multiple entities, set the number of copies, and the multiple entities will be scaled with the same scale increment.
  • Isotropic Scaling: This parameter defines the scaling of the X and Y directions, separately. If checked, the scaling of X and Y directions are the same.
    • X: Set the scaling of the X direction.
    • Y: Set the scaling of the Y direction.
