I was wondering, how do you parent an object to another? NEWBIE! :cool:

More than one way.
In modeler WINDOWS>LAYERS PANEL... Once in the layers panel, double click on the layer and select parent then the layer you which to parent to.
In Layout, press m key and the first item is parenting.
You can also change the window to schematic view then hold down the ctrl key then select the second object to parent it to the first object. In the schematic view to remove the parent hold down ctrl key and select the line connecting the two.

You can also use the scene editor to parent an object (or anything else) to another. just drag and drop the item you want under its parent, and you're done :)

Or in the schematic view, select your objects, and ctl-click the parent object.
