    Default Temporary Osnap feature

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Group;

    I can't seem to figure out to use the temporary Osnap feature.

    Say I want to do multiple copies of an object and have the osnaps temporarily over-ride to be snapping to just endpoints. How do I get the Shift+E to work? Am I suppose to do this before I start the command or while I'm performing the command? Is this just a one time over-ride and it goes back to your default osnap setting or does it stay over in the temporary state until you change it to a different one or set it back to default? I thought that it should work while performing the command; but I can't seem to figure it out.

    Can someone help me understand how to use it?
    It would be greatly appreciated.

    Cadkiller,
    Once you initiate the copy command, hold down shift+E and hover your crosshair over the endpoint of a line until the snap appears. Then click to grab the endpoint. You can then release the shift+E after you grab the endpoint.

    And yes, this is just a one time override. Once you release the shift+E you revert back to your current running osnaps.

    Depending on what version you're running, you may be able to hold down the shift key and right click to open a shortcut menu with all of your snap options.
