This might be a stupid question but I moved a room, resulting in some vias and path in negative coordinates. You can see below a 3D view. I would like to delete them but in 2D mode, I can't zoom out to see the elements that are in negative coordinates. So I can't select them...

I tried to flip the view but it's not better.

Thanks for your help.

  • \$\begingroup\$ You want to know how to select the components that have gone on the negative x-direction, so that you could delete them? Or I'm understanding it wrong? \$\endgroup\$ – Sachin Nov 15 '17 at 11:26

    \$\begingroup\$ Try a Ctrl-A ("select all") and then E-M-S ("Edit -> Move -> Selection"), click on any part of the board and try dragging in the desired direction to bring the off-screen components back in. \$\endgroup\$ – DerStrom8 Nov 15 '17 at 11:34
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Sachin: Yes, you're right \$\endgroup\$ – Julien Nov 15 '17 at 11:45
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Julien Glad to hear it! For future reference, I HIGHLY recommend moving your relative origin much further away from the absolute origin (bottom left of the screen) to avoid this issue. \$\endgroup\$ – DerStrom8 Nov 15 '17 at 12:25
