The center area in the Catalogues window is called the Viewing area. This is where all symbols are displayed with a thumbnail, part number and description. If you right-click the description or the part number, you can open the Symbol Replace dialog from the context menu to choose options for that symbol.
To place a symbol, simply click the preview button and place it onto drawing area. The Explorer dialog will hide itself when doing so. Right click, press the Esc key, or move your cursor outside of the drawing area to end the command, and the explorer dialog reappears.
- Dragging and dropping symbol from viewing area to drawing area is only allowed for picklist item; dragging symbols to drawing area will get a stop sign.
- The only way to place the symbol is by selecting the preview icon to the left of the part number; clicking the part number or description will not do anything.
After clicking the preview icon in the Viewing area and moving the cursor to the drawing area to place the symbol, the Catalogue Explorer automatically hides to assure that you have full visibility. The window immediately reappears once you are done placing the symbol.
