Turn your EAGLE schematic into a PCB


Step 5: Move the components into the legal area

The first thing we want to do is move at least some components into the legal board area where we can work with them. If you have a particularly large board with many components, you might want to do this a section at a time. For this sample board, we have plenty of room and we can move them all at once, using the group-move feature.

Select the GROUP icon, then click and drag to make a rectangle that goes all the way around the components. Then select the MOVE icon and RIGHT click (right clicking selects the group instead of a single component) and drag the set into the board outline. Use the ZOOM button to tighter the view.
