INTELLISKETCH

N/A

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.

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.
