Usage

  1. Pick one or two points or one line.
  2. Invoke the command several ways:
    • Press the Sketcher ConstrainDistanceY.svg Constrain vertical distance button.
    • Use the Shift + V keyboard shortcut. (V is for Vertical)
    • Use the Sketch → Sketcher constraints → Sketcher ConstrainDistanceY.svg Constrain vertical distance entry from the top menu.
  3. A pop up dialog opens to edit or confirm the value. Press OK to validate.

Note: the constraint tool can also be started with no prior selection, but will require selection of two points or one line. To set the distance to the origin, the sketch origin point needs to be selected as well. By default the command will be in continue mode to create new constraints; press the right mouse button or Esc once to quit the command.
