of entering coordinates, you can specify points relative to existing
objects such as endpoints of lines or center points of circles.
- Use Object Snaps
Use object snaps to
specify precise locations on objects. For example, you can use an
object snap to draw a line to the center of a circle or to the midpoint
of a polyline segment.
- The Object Snap Menu
Specify an object snap
quickly and conveniently from a shortcut menu.
- Set Visual Aids for Object
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
- Override Object Snap Settings
While you work, you
can turn running object snaps on and off temporarily by using an
override key. Temporary override keys can also be used for other
drawing aids; for example, Ortho mode and Polar mode.
