  1. Hello all, I'm trying to align some text blocks and arrows, but I'm having a clumsy time navigating AutoCAD's "features" related to doing this. Quick demo pasted below I have my text centered, and want to align them to my (red) centerline. But whenever I select two blocks and try to Move them, the "grab handles" go away. If I have a lot of items to move, it's tedious to do one at a time. On the corner, there is a QuickCalc button where I can pick the exact coordinate I want, but when I try that, it sets ALL coordinates at the same time, where I only want to change the Y. If I try to calculate an absolute Y-coordinate, then it won't move if I resize the column, so I'd rather not do it that way. Is there a way I can highlight a bunch of items and just hit a button to "Center all Y-coordinates at [Click here]"?
  2. Hi all. I'm new to inventor, particularly working with sheetmetal. I have a model Im working on. Its basically a cover for an item. It comprises of three parts that will be welded together. the 'Body section is a flat piece of sheet metal that is folded 7 times with the weld making the eighth corner. Size of each face is (in mm) 20-30-20-67-20-30-20-67. height is irrelevant for the purpose of this post. Thickness of the sheet is 1.3mm. the fold angle is 45 degrees I've created 7 folds on the sheet and I'm basically got one edge overlapping into the middle of the face at the other end of the sheet. I want to create a weld along these two faces but I cant figure out how to align the two ends of the body in order for me to create a weld. Any help would be much apreciated Cheers Dean
