Hi guys

First of all thank you all for this forum :)

Well I am starting to make my own designs and although I have advanced a lot last days, I have some issues yet. At the moment I have my first PCB done (components, traces, board) including the board outline but here I have one of my "problems". I want my PCB is a square (the same size for each size) for example 15mm or 20mm but I dont know how to configure it

I think this is pretty easy for you guys (who have a lot of knowledge about the program but I am a noob yet

Thanks in advance

All layers are configured in the View Configurations dialog. The presentation of the View Configurations dialog will change, depending on if the work space is currently in 2D Layout Mode or 3D Layout. In both modes there are 2 main regions in the dialog, the section on the left that is used for selecting, creating or configuring a View Configuration, and the section on the right where you configure the various display settings.

Hello,

you can define size of PCB in two way:

1 In menu objects click on board points and choose the xy dimensions.
2 You can design board outline with the specific button but in this way you must use a confortable grid to draw parallel lines.

Nice day

You can define the board size from a primitive, for example, draw the edges of the board using lines, select them all, then go to Design->Board Shape->Define from selected objects:
