In certain cases there may be a need that a certain item cannot be moved, but can be selected. Example: an aggregate whose position is always fixed in relation to the module.
Movable attribute definitions
This attribute allows defining whether it will be possible to move an item or not after its insertion in the environment.
With a False value, it will not be possible to move the item after its insertion in the environment.
When registering this attribute, its default configuration defines that it is created automatically (in a hidden way) for all entities (Automatic Creation property) and with a default value of True (in other words, the attribute is applied in all modules to define that these will be movable in the environment. If it is necessary to define the contrary, it is necessary to apply the attribute in the module and change its value to False.
Aggregate items that cannot be moved in the module. In this case, they receive the False value for this attribute.
In the images below, on the left, you can see that with the Movable - True attribute, when selecting the shelf, the Tools Movement tab is available. On the right, with the Movable - False attribute, when selecting the shelf, the Moving tab is not displayed in the Tools.
