Description:

Use this tool to create a line that is orthogonal to another line and tangent to an existing arc, circle or ellipse entity.

Procedure:

  1. Click the line entity to which the new line should be orthogonal.
  2. Click the arc, circle or ellipse entity to which the line should be a tangent. There are two possible solutions. When moving the mouse around, you can see a preview of the tangent that will be created.
