Hi, What's the smart way to resize a line length that is perpendicular to another line, and should be equal length on either side of the perpendicular line? See attached file - how do I change the 13.89 mm line length to 15mm and keep it symmetric about its perpendicular line (i.e. 'slide' the 13.89mm line towards the drawing centre and make it 15mm)? Thanks, Rick
Rick, I have updated your file with the requested changes. I placed three connect constraints. 1. Connect the midpoint of the of your perpendicular line to the centerline. Click the Connect command in the Relate command group in the Home tab. Locate and click the mid point of the perpendicular line. Click anywhere along the center line. The midpoint will be constrained to the centerline. 2. Connect the endpoints of the line. Click the Connect command in the Relate command group in the Home tab. Locate and click an endpoint of the perpendicular line. Click anywhere on the connection line. Do the same for the other end of the perpendicular line. (Note: If you initially draw the line extending beyond the other lines and use trim, it will add the connect constraint.) Change the dimension. The line will be perpendicular, centered and connected. The dimension will push the line toward the center of the drawing. Regards, Rick B.
