Minor point adjustments and snap grid

Postby liderbug » Sat Apr 03, 2010 1:53 am

First day of use. Can't find in the html manual.

1. I draw a line A -> B -> C -> D -> A and one of the corners is off just a hair. I haven't been able to figure out how to tweek the end point by say 1 grid dot.

2. I'd like to set my resolution to 1/4 or .25 inch with grid points to match - will help solve #1 above. I can't get "sg" any better than 1"

Thanks

To move the end point of one or more lines, please select the line(s) and then drag and drop the appropriate blue squares. To make sure that the end points are exactly at the right position, you might have to zoom in and use the most appropriate snap tool.

You can adjust the grid spacing in Edit - Current Drawing Preferences - Grid. If grid points between an inch are not displayed, zoom in a bit.
