  4. A centerline will be added between the 2 selected Vertices.

To delete a Centerline, select it and use the toolbar button TechDraw CosmeticEraser.svg Remove Cosmetic Object.

Editing Centerlines

Any of the centerline command buttons ( TechDraw FaceCenterLine.svg Add Centerline to Face(s), TechDraw 2LineCenterLine.svg Add Centerline between 2 Lines, TechDraw 2PointCenterLine.svg Add Centerline between 2 Points) can be used to edit any centerline.

  2. Press any centerline command button.
  3. A dialog will open where you can change attributes of the centerline.
  4. Press OK to see your changes.
