Horizontal/Vertical Relationship Tool Bug


When you select the horizontal/vertical relationship tool and click on the center
of a line, the tool locks up and you have to click on the button again to activate
the tool again. It only happens when you click on the very center of the line. I
haven't seen this reported here yet so I thought I would put it out there. I'm sure
others must have run into this by now. I've known about it for quite a while but
just kept dealing with it when it locked up the tool.

Ed,
The horizontal/vertical command is not hanging up. It is asking for another
input.
Horizontal/vertical constraints can be applied to lines or between
keypoints.
If you simply click on a line you are saying that the line needs to be
horizontal or vertical.
If you click on a keypoint (endpoint, center point) you are saying that you
want that specific point on the object (line) to be aligned
horizontal/vertical with another keypoint to be selected.
For example you can align the end of a line vertically above or below the
center of a circle. Or you can align the ends of two lines to be always one
above the other.
I hope this description helps.

Oops! I just ate some crow and it wasn't very tasty.
Thanks for the explanation.
