The sequence of clicks is indicated by yellow arrows with numbers. Select element A; see a vector line indicated by two red lines from pivot point A pointing to mouse position number 2. Move the mouse pointer to the target location 3 and see the element now as B autoconstrained on point 3.

How to use

  1. Select the sketch elements for the move operation.
  2. Press the Sketcher Move.svg Move button.
  3. Click on a point or a location in empty space to move the elements to their new location. The existing constraints move as well.
  4. If you want to detach an element and move freely, delete its locking constraints and drag with mouse.
