Object Not Completely within Sheet Boundaries

Parent category: Violations Associated with Others

Default report mode:


This violation occurs when a design object resides beyond the extents of the schematic sheet.


If compiler errors and warnings are enabled for display on the schematic (enabled on the Schematic - Compiler page of the Preferences dialog) an offending object will display a colored squiggle beneath it. A notification is also displayed in the Messages panel in the following format:

Off sheet <ObjectIdentifier> at <Location> ,


ObjectIdentifier identifies the specific object that currently does not reside completely within the boundary defined by the sheet. The identifier is composed of the object's type and its name/designator (e.g., Port <PortName>).

Location is the X,Y coordinates for the object's electrical hotspot.

Recommendation for Resolution

When placing or pasting objects onto a sheet, you are prevented from placing/pasting beyond the extents of the sheet's border. This issue typically arises when the size and orientation of the sheet is changed after object placement. Consider the following to resolve the problem:

  • Change the sheet orientation.
  • Choose a larger sheet size.
  • Move the offending objects back within the sheet boundary.

The first two options are carried out from the Sheet Options page of the Document Options dialog (Project | Content | ). Changing sheet size is the simplest way to resolve the issue. Moving objects manually may require layout changes to the circuit to provide enough space to accommodate the offending objects.
