2013 Polyline extension won't attach at right place!

Recommended Posts

Hello you all

 

I am so frustrated about one thing that has been changed in the newest version (2013)

 

Before, in PL command, 2D, I could point my marker at one snap point on a line for example,

then I drag my marker to one direction towards where I want the Polyline to start. I write

in an number (ex. 1000 mm) for the distance from the snap point, and ENTER it. The

polyline starts now 1000 mm from the snap point I chose.

 

NOWADAYS it attaches in an RANDOM, and for me, inappropriate place on the current

drawing when I ENTER the distance

 

 

Is it some settings I have to change to get this as it was in the 2012 version?

I am a terrible explainer, so ask if you don't get it.

 

I will marry the one, or those, who can help me with this, I bought some fantastic rings

for us.

Attach file here that exhibits this behavior.

Do you have Parametric Constraints turned on?

I'm sorry, I can't find where to check whether the Parametric Constraints

are turned on or off

A very generous offer, to be sure, but I am more interested in helping

people with the software than getting married, as my wife might not understand. :)

 

Try hitting F11 to turn on your Object Tracking,

or as shown in the image you can click on the indicated icon.

Personally, I find leaving just AutoSNAP 2D and Ortho On are the most useful, though this is down to opinion.

I was actually aware of that Object Snap Tracking would have something

to to with my problem. I looked more into the Object Snap Tracking SETTINGS

(or Dynamic Input) when Dadgad mentioned it, and turned off and on the

"Enable dimension input when possible" option. AND THEN when I closed the

setting box, like a miracle from the almighty AutoGod, it was working.

 

 

This was obviously something that was just.. stuck.

 

Thank you for your help, guys! Now I can happily go on with my interior project : D
