  • Part Position and Dimensions—Enter the position and size values directly in the Part Position and Dimensions section to move or resize the part in the Control Editor window, which is useful when you must make two parts exactly the same size or align one part with another. After you enter position and size values in the Part Position and Dimensions section, press the <Enter> key or click the right mouse button for the changes to take effect. You can specify the following options:
    • Top—The position of the top of the currently selected part, shown in the Current Part ring control. You can change the position by changing this number or by moving the part in the Control Editor window.

    • Height—The height of the currently selected part, shown in the Current Part ring control. You can change the height by changing this number or by resizing the part in the Control Editor window.
    • Width—The width of the currently selected part, shown in the Current Part ring control. You can change the width by changing this number or by resizing the part in the Control Editor window.
