Working with Altium 365 Projects

Project Comments

Design work is a team effort; even if you design the whole device by yourself, it is almost impossible to get through production without comments and discussion.

Altium 365 allows you and your colleagues to leave and view comments either in Altium Designer or a Web browser.

Select an object in Altium Designer, then in the context menu of the selected object click the Comment command.
