    I changed the setting for UCSFOLLOW but it made no difference as you said. I am not sure exactly how to do what you have suggested otherwise.

    How do I align the centre of a smaller rectangle with that of the centre of a larger rectangle on the horizontal (x) axis?

    After starting the RECTANGLE command, pick your first point, then enter @X,Y to define the diagonally opposed corner with relative coordinates. If you enter positive values the X value will move right and the Y value will move to the back, both in positive directions referenced from the ORIGIN (UCS LOGO). If the relative coordinate points have negative values, of course they will go in the opposite directions RELATIVE to the first point you defined..

    Thank you for your reply. How about aligning the centre of an existing smaller rectangle with that of the centre of an existing larger rectangle on the horizontal (x) axis?

    I'm noticing that your cursor is at funky angles. Are you working in 3D while also working with Isometric snap turned on?

    If that is causing you issues use the command DDRMODES and then switch to "Rectangular snap"

    Funny you should mention that, I changed that setting this morning, thanks for the heads up.


    Still wondering about my previous question though.

    Take a look at "command modifiers" in this case it would be MTP or M2P (middle of two points), pick the smaller rectangle and start the move command then before picking a start point, type "mtp" and press enter, this prompts you to pick 2 points (opposite mid points on the rectangle sides) and autocad uses a point centered on those points as your start point, then when it asks for the second point again type "mtp" and pick 2 opposite mid points on the larger rectangle. It might take a bit of practice, but is a great way to get around a drawing. You should also have a look for "point filters"

    Thank you so much for your help. This sounds very useful and is probably pretty simple but I have tried a few times and can't achieved the desired effect, is there a tutorial video of this?

    I am slowly getting there. Can someone please tell me how I would go about changing the dimensions of the left and top faces of this shape with the slanted face automatically adjusting according to the other two faces? This is a 3d shape with a thickness of 10mm.
