    Unable to rotate component with spacebar in PCB view

    ggarner

      When I first installed CircuitStudio, I was able to rotate components with the spacebar. For some reason, I can no longer do this. Pressing the spacebar does nothing, but if I using Move > Rotate Selection, I can rotate the component. Using the latter method is, however, intolerable for rotating multiple components during the layout process. I have tried reinstalling the product, but to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem?

          It may be possible that your rotation step got changed to 0 or 360.  Try this:

           

          Go to your Preferences and under PCB Editor, look to see what your Rotation Step is set to.  I have mine set to 45.000.  You might have a different number.  If you choose to change it, make sure that it is in multiples of 90 degrees, such as 10, 15, 30, 45, 90.

           

          There is a possibility that you've somehow disabled the feature.  I am uncertain how to disable or enable quick keys. 

           

          When you reinstall CircuitStudio, all of your settings should be retained in a folder somewhere unless you delete them when you uninstall CS.
