  2. Hello guys I am typing this because i am out of ideas The problem we are having at the office is that when we try to use the geometric center with closed simple polygons, the geometric center is not quite in the center. Even with really simple polygons. I found online that the problem could be some imported elements from other programs (like archicad or arcgis or something like that) , and that if you move your elements near the 0,0,0 coordinate point, the problem is solved. BUT, as you guessed, we can not do that since we work with real coordinates and we need them exactly referenced
  3. Hey everyone, I am new to drafting and been having trouble with Osnaps and Ortho clashing when i draw lines, plines, measure and etc. Pretty much anytime i type in a command, and sometimes randomly. What i mean is that whenever i press F3 which is key bound to snaps or F8 which is key bound to Ortho they scramble up. Example: Im drawing a line to the edge of another line so to keep it straight i press ortho but it turns osnaps off, so i press osnaps to turn it back on, but it than turns my ortho off. So i press osnaps again and it actually turn it back, so than i go back to pressing ortho
  4. I've had this issue before but never really investigated it further until today. I use a lot of polygonal viewports to show twisting routes of water mains along a section of an OS map and add connection details in the remaining paper space areas. What I've noticed when using this method is that OSNAPS still snap to the map features in the empty space, however, only within a rectangular area that would fit the extents of the polygonal viewport. I'm not looking for a fix as it's not a major issue, but just thought I'd report it and see if anyone else has noticed it and knows why it h

    osnap to a wipeout

    is there any way to get the osnap to stop finding ends of a wipeout? I have a tag that I use with labels to show a material. because of the tight quarters of sections at times I added a wipeout behind the attribute. the frame around the 'tag' has semi-circles at the ends and it is a polyline. as you know wipeouts don't work with curved polylines so I had to create a new polyline behind the curved polyline with a ton of endpoints so it followed the curve as best as possible. now when I insert the 'tag' and add a leader it snaps to every point that I created with the wipeout polyline. the fram

    DLine object snap resets

    Hi! I'm trying out the dline command in Autocad LT 2016, and it works pretty well. However, after each command is finished, and I start a new dline command - the object snap resets and no snap setting is selected, so I have to select them everytime I start a new dline command. You guys have any idea why it doesn't save the OSNAP state? Works fine with line command. Edit: The object snap modes gets deselected, but the OSNAP is still set to "ON". If I during the dline command type S(NAP), it shows as "ON".
  7. It happened for the past couple of day, i had the endpoints osnap on and i tried to snap a line at top left corner but the cursor was jumping around, what's a pain! i went in OPTIONS and drafting and adjusted the Aperture size but didn't work, does anyone know how to fix this? thanks
  8. in earlier versions of autocad osnap used to snap to all endpoints if i had it enabled. Now osnap only snaps to endpoints that would be visiable if the object was solid. If a endpoint is "through", underneath, or inside a object. I am unable to snap to it. I am using autocad 2015 does anyone know where the setting is to toggle this behavior?
  9. Hi, I'm having a problem with OSNAP and am not sure what I'm doing wrong. As you can see from the attached photo, I am using offset to create a parallel line to the one selected (the leftmost line) that I am trying to place tangent to the circle in the center. However, the tangent snap points (which should be visible in the picture) aren't working properly and cause the line to snap to a position inside the circle rather than tangent to it. My command process is offset -> through -> select line -> select TAN onsnap option -> hover over circle near desired tangent point. A
  10. I made a spline and there are clear verticies, but autocad just refuses to snap to them. All my osnaps are on and it will snap to some points on the spline but not one where there is a clear vertex. i am stumped.

    Object Snap is 'slipping'

    I don't know what I changed, but suddenly when copying or moving sections already drawn, with Ortho on, when I release from my move, the entire selection has shifted. This is quite frustrating, and never happened before. I take these to a point on a line that seems to highlight or 'accept' that location ~ when I click and enter, it's on the same axis, but NOT where I intended. Unfortunately, I do not know what the 'problem free' settings were, but I currently have the following activated in OSNAP: Endpoint Midpoint Node Intersection Nearest Any assistance would be appreciate
  12. Hello all. I have a LISP routine that I have been using forever now so excuse me if it is written sorta outdated to what it could look like if it were updated. It is a balloon(bubble) routine to insert letters or numbers inside a sized bubble with a line and an arrow. The problem I am having is that when running the command after selecting my first point i have to physically turn off OSNAP then after I enter the numbers and finish the command turn OSNAP back on because if I do not it distorts the arrow... I have a mouse with extra programmed buttons that allows me to speed up the proce
  13. I have this macro (from Somewhere) to increment numbers on each click. I would like it to set to object snap Near before i click so it will just snap the number to the nearest thing i click. *^C^C_text;\;$M=$(+,$(getvar,USERI1),1);setvar;USERI1;$M=$(+,$(getvar,USERI1),1); Also is there anyway to change this so the text is rotated 90deg? As a separate macro. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance.
  14. Hi My "Nearest" osnap is not even close to snapping to my circle. All other snaps are working fine, nearest snap are working on lines and rectangles, not at all on circles. Whats going on? Image attached.
  15. Lines snap at an offset distance (0.0000274 m e.g.) from the actual point. What change of settings can resolve it?
  16. Hello Let's say I want to move a text. I pick it up and place it somewhere. I don't want it to be snapped anywhere so I am careful that yellow OSNAP mark is not showed anywhere. I pick the destination point and text disappears! What happened?! Of course... cursor was too close to some line and it was snapped to it's start point But the start point was outside my view, so I could not see the yellow marker. I never want to snap to a point that is outside my view! So: Is it possible to tell autocad, that it uses OSNAP only for points that are inside the current view?
  17. I was using acad 2007 and it did exactly what I want. I am now using acad 2010 and for some reason when I draw a polyline and spline it with pedit, I cannot grab the endpoint of the line. The osnap doesn't see it. If I hit tab a bunch of times eventually I can get it to grab, but that is not efficient. It works fine with normal splines, but I use autocad as an illustration tool and regular spline doesn't work for my needs. Any ideas or help on a setting or something that I might be able to change would be greatly appreciated. This is a make or break deal for me with autocad. I will have to g
