SnapDistanceManual

This tool allows you to snap to a point that is between two points, or a given

distance from the first point, at an angle defined by the second point.

It includes a snap distance box and a drop down combo box. The combo box

has three options - 'Distance', 'Percent' and 'Fraction'. So if you entered

50 percent or a fraction of 0.5, for example, it would retuen a point exactly

half-way between the two points.

You enter the value in the snap distance box, and then choose 'Distance',

'Percent', or 'Fraction' from the drop down box.

This command does not restrict the distance, percent or fraction entered.

Therefore a distance greater than the distance between the two points will

return a point beyond the second point. Similarly a percentage greater than

100, and a fraction greater than 1 will return a point beyond the second point.

You can also enter a negative value. This will return a point before the first

point. (Note: You can enter fractions as '1/7', or '3/11' for example.)

The shortcut for this command is DM.

The attached zip file contains the SnapDistanceManual subdirectory.

Extract this to the scripts/snap subdirectory. Then add the

SnapDistanceManual directory to snap.pro, or replace it with the included

snap.pro file.
