Dimensions between electronic components

Trying to figure out if there is a way to put dimensions between components. For example lets say I have five switches and I want them to all be exactly 30 mm apart. Then if I need to move one of the switches all the other switches would move and stay 30mm apart.  I can easily do this in a sketch in the CAD Design area but I can't find any way to do this in the PCB layout.

Hi @lerxstjunk 

I hope you are doing well!

As I know, we can't support keeping dimension when move components.

As a workaround, I would suggest that you can use the Arrange command to arrange components easily.

You can just do it once when you have confirm the first position.

Please have a try, thanks!

For your request, I will report it to the develop team to see if we can do some improvement in the future.
