Object snaps include
a visual aid called AutoSnap™ to help
you see and use object snaps more efficiently. AutoSnap displays
a marker and a tooltip when you move your cursor over an object
consists of the following snap tools:
- Marker. Displays the object snap
location when the cursor moves over or near an object. Marker shape
is dependent on the snap it is marking.
- Tooltip. Describes which
part of the object you are snapping to in a small flag at the cursor location.
- Magnet. Attracts and locks the
cursor onto the nearest detected snap points. Provides a visual cue,
similar to snapping to a grid.
- Aperture box. Surrounds
the crosshairs and defines an area within which object snaps are evaluated.
You can choose to display or not display the aperture box, and you
can change the aperture box size.
The AutoSnap markers, tooltips, and magnet are
turned on by default. You can change AutoSnap settings on the Drafting
tab in the Options dialog box.
