Setting snap spacing

Another way to ensure drawing accuracy is to turn on and set snap spacing. When snap is turned on, the program restricts the selection points to predetermined snap intervals. Although it is often helpful to match the snap spacing to some interval of grid spacing or another related setting, the settings do not have to match.

To turn snap settings on and set snap spacing

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Settings > Drawing Settings.
    • On the Settings toolbar, click the Drawing Settings tool ().
    • Type settings and then press Enter.
  2. Click the Coordinate Input tab.
  3. Under Change Settings For, choose Snap And Grid.
  4. Under Snap Settings, click the Snap check box to turn it on.
  5. Under Snap Settings Spacing, in the X field, choose the horizontal snap spacing.
  6. Under Snap Settings Spacing, in the Y field, choose the vertical snap spacing.
  7. Click OK.

TIP To toggle snap settings on and off at any time, double-click the SNAP setting on the status bar, click the Snap tool () on the Settings toolbar, or press F9.

In addition to setting the snap spacing, you can change the snap and grid orientation. You can also rotate the alignment of the grid or set it to create isometric drawings.
