NAME

IDENTIFY - Identify named instances or components  

SYNOPSIS

IDE [<comp>[<layer>]][[:P] <xypnt>] | [:R <xy1> <xy2>] ... EOC  

DESCRIPTION

The IDEntify command highlights and prints out details of selected components. Components can be selected either by point or by region. The default mode is select by point. However, if you change to select by region with :R, you can later change back with :P. The selection mode is "sticky" so you can do multiple selections of the same type without re-entering the option.  

OPTIONS

:R
Select by Region. Identify zero or more components whose bounding boxes are entirely contained within the rectangular region defined by <xy1> & <xy2>. When selecting by region, a rubber-banded rectangle will be drawn after the first coordinate to help the user define the region.
:P
Select by Point. Identify the single component closest to <xypnt>.
<comp>
A designator limiting the command to a given component. One of E=everything, A=arc, C=circle, I=instances, L=lines, N=notes, O=oval, P=polygons, R=rectangles, T=text, or a valid instance name. If an instance name is given, only instances of that name will be selected. If no <component> is given, then components of any type may be selected.
<layer>
Layer number, "0" or omitted designates all layers. Not used when <component> is an instance name.
