IDENTIFY - Identify named instances or components
IDE [<comp>[<layer>]][[:P] <xypnt>] | [:R <xy1> <xy2>] ... EOC
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.
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.
Select by Point. Identify the single component closest to <xypnt>.
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 number, "0" or omitted designates all layers. Not used
when <component> is an instance name.
