Hi, I am not able to start a new line from "intersection" (from the point were two lines cross each other). I can start from the middle, the edge, etc. but not from the "intersection". Anybody can help. thanks regards Valter
Valter, I think you need to change your mindset, in SE2D you can draw a line and then reposition it, or control it with relations. Draw a line in approxiamtely the position you want it, and then add a relation to "Connect" the end point to one or both of the lines as required. Make sure you have "Maintain Relations" on the "Tools" pull down selected. This way (IMO) it's easier to change drawings, as you are not stuck with the same relations you draw with, but can change them as you go along. Good luck, let me know of any other problems you have. -Andy.

Valter, Make sure that both Maintain Relationships and Relationship Handles are enabled. Also make sure that Intersection point is enabled in the Intellisketch Options. Draw some lines that intersect. Start the Place Line command again. Move the mouse close to the point where the lines cross or intersect. You should see the intersection point image. Click at the intersection. Your new line will be connected to the intersection of the two original lines. You can also use the 'i' key on the keyboard. Move the mouse over one of the original lines so that it highlights. Then move the mouse over the other line and press the 'i' key on the keyboard. The new line will be placed starting at the intersection of the two lines. If the current highlighted line intersects with more than one of the previously highlighted objects, you will see a list when you key in 'i' to specify which intersection you need. regards, Rick B.
