  6. Specify the block (for nodes) or the linetype (for linear objects) to use when creating the new objects.
  7. Specify whether to snap to the closest endpoint (for nodes) or insertion point (for linear objects).
  8. For nodes, select whether to specify the rotation and scale of each node block.

    For linear objects, select whether the objects are 2D or 3D. For 2D objects, specify a width.

  9. Click OK to close the dialog box and save your settings.
