Hi. I have searched the web and youtube but there is no answer to my question. How do I produce a PCB board as in the attached image. Please note that I am new at Altium PCB therefore dimensions are not necessary. I need instructions on how to produce the PCB...rounded corners...cut out for screws...notch for keyed insert. Regards.

There are several ways to do what you want. What I would do is create the outline of the board on some layer. Then use the command ’Create Board outline From Shape’. (Im not sure of the exact Command, its something like that.) Holes (not ”cutouts for screws”) are just placed like any other component, they're not part of the board outline.

Use the line tool to create the outline you desire and then use the define board shape from selected objects option to get the desired board shape. You can use pads for holes, no need to create them in the outline. In the pad properties, use the hole size option to control hole size. Hope this helps.
