  1. Click and drag the mouse on the Chip Planner floorplan to draw a clock region of your preferred location and size. The region that you draw snaps to the smallest clock sector capable of containing the region. Orange clock sector grids help visualize positioning of the clock region relative to clock sectors.
  2. Assign a clock signal from the context menu. A clock symbol in the region title bar identifies a clock region. The clock region is unassigned until you assign a clock signal from the context menu.
