Usage

For general information about snapping see Draft Snap.

  1. Make sure snapping is enabled. See Draft Snap Lock.svg Draft Snap Lock.
  2. If Draft Snap Ortho is not active do one of the following:
    • Press the Draft Snap Ortho.svg button in the Draft Snap toolbar.
    • Press the Draft Snap Ortho.svg button in the Draft snap widget.
  3. Choose a Draft or Arch command to create your geometry.
  4. Note that you can also change snap options while a command is active.
  5. Pick a first point. This snap option requires a previous point.
  6. If you move the cursor around the previous point you will notice a "magnetic" effect when the cursor is on an imaginary infinite line crossing that point at an angle of 0°, 45°, 90° or 135°.
  7. The point is marked and the Draft Snap Ortho.svg icon is displayed near the cursor.
  8. Click to confirm the point.
