small selection square jumps around

Recommended Posts


Will one of  you Guru's here tell me why my small selection square will not land on a line for me to select, but rather jumps all around it.

I am trying to put a fillet between two lines forming a corner and the small selection square that comes up will not allow me to select

the lines, but lands on either side of the line. I am new to Autocad.

Thank you in advance,

It sounds like you have SNAP enabled.

By default, the F9 key will toggle SNAP on and off. Tap the F9 key and try again.

BINGO! @rkmcswain nailed it!    :beer:


Having GRID turned on can also potentially lead to selection problems, dependent upon the scale of your Grid.     ;)
