How does one get a starting point in the draft environment as a reference for other objects.
IE how can one start a line at 0,0 of the draft environment.
Right now all of my title blocks are floating in space lined up 1/4" from a set of lines I created around the edge of the paper space visually by zooming all the way in.
Taking that a step further, how can one line up views to alignment objects. Why can't any object be used as an alignment object?
I used to draw a circle first, and with using the RMB - props of that circle, You can define the x,y origin coordinates and setting them to 0,0
Fix this circle and You have a perfect reference for.
After fixing every graphic object You can delete that circle, or let it stay at the lower left corner, as You like
You could use the Grid tools and/or X-Y input field, from the Draw tools on the Sketching Tab.
Now, how does one get an alignment object into a specific position? I'm not able to put a dimension to an alignment object.
Not sure on your use case here.....how do you wish to use this?
Initially I'm thinking you could use sketches on a seperate layer you can hide.
Aha, I think I see......you want to control the positioning via dimensions or relationships, of text boxes, etc.
I don't believe there is currently a way to do this.
That explains it. Again looking to do something that I can't do.
They need to think through things a bit better when adding features.
Why create alignment objects that can't be aligned themselves!
