    Default Crosshair Angle?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    How do you set the crosshairs to be at an angle of say 30 degrees?

    And also, if you open a drawing with the cross hairs already set to an unknown angle, how do you reset them to 0 and 90 degrees?

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    you can change the crosshairs angle with snapang, you can also use snapang to reset them back to 0 degrees

    go to Tools|Drafting Settings|Snap & Grid.

    Play as much as you like! Normal setting is for rectangular snap for orthoganol work or isometric snap if you are drawing in isometric. If working in isometric CTRL+E will step you around the planes.

    thanks for that.

    Ive got a drawing that has an unknown angled crosshair but when I typed in SNAPANG the value is 0.0000 - yet the cross hairs appear around 20ish degrees?

    is the UCS set to world or rotated? Type PLAN to see if anything happens.

    Also note that SNAPANG can be called transparently, so you can change it in the middle of a command.

    Code:
    Command: ._LINE
    Specify first point:
    Specify next point or [Undo]: 'snapang
    >>Enter new value for SNAPANG <0.000r>: 1.5r
    Resuming .LINE command.
    Specify next point or [Undo]:  <Ortho on>
    Specify next point or [Undo]: 'snapang
    >>Enter new value for SNAPANG <1.500r>: 3r
    Resuming .LINE command.
    Specify next point or [Undo]:
    Specify next point or [Close/Undo]:

    What do you have in mind for a new style?

    Not to my knowledge. What exactly is it that you wanted to do?
