Using fly-over snapping

Fly-over snapping is a visual aid to help you see and use entity snaps more efficiently. When fly-over snapping is turned on, progeCAD displays a colored marker at matching entity snap points as you move the crosshairs around the drawing.

Each entity snap has its own marker.

When fly-over snapping is enabled and multiple entity snaps are on, you can press Tab to cycle through the available entity snap points of the entities covered by the target box. For example, when the Endpoint and Midpoint Snaps are on and the aperture box is located on a line, press Tab to cycle between the line's closest endpoint and midpoint.

To set the fly-over snapping options

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Settings > Drawing Settings.

  5. Set the fly-over options, including the color, size, and thickness of the snap marker.

  6. Click OK.
