Marker

Markers are special objects, that are used during manual alignment, to assign relations between a feature seen in a scan and the corresponding feature in the layout.

Note

Markers are not exposed.

Warning

Do not create multiple instances (references) of markers. Since the assigned position is a property of an instance (alignPosition), they do not behave well as instances.
