To convert a polygon to a polyline 1 Select the polygon you want to convert. Trimming Entities Trimming is one way of refining and finishing a draw- In this chapter Creating a corner ing. Linear dimensions include horizontal, vertical, aligned, and rotated dimensions.
For example, a polyline vertices with a single segment has two vertices: By default the grid origin is located at the drawing coordinates 0,0, for example, at the drawing origin. A rectangle using two points in which an ellipse is tangent to all four sides. To change the start and included angle of an elliptical arc 1 Enter vertex editing mode. The choices for decimal precision range from 1 to 0. Converting Arcs and Circles You can convert arcs to curves or to polylines.
You can specify whether the status bar is hidden or displayed by right- clicking any bar, and clicking Status on the pop-up menu. On the Inquire menu, click Selection Properties or Drawing Properties to display the extent and count of each entity type in the selection set and autosketchh drawing, respectively. When entering a scalar value, in addition to entering a value or expression, you can enter a scalar as a ratio of two lengths the second length over the first.
X-and y-coordinates express location in terms of hori- zontal and vertical distances from another point. The color you selected adjusts as you change the RGB values.
There are three isometric grid types to choose from—each offering autoskech different drawing plane for the snap grid. AutoSketch provides many options for looking at your drawing onscreen. See guidelines degrees, notation for entering — Content Librarian Delete command Edit menu Content Librarian, selecting symbols from deleting entities converting entities A rubber-band rectangle follows the pointer.
To move the dimension line on an angular dimension 1 Double-click the dimension or right-click it and click Edit Vertices on the ahndbuch menu. To close a polyline 1 Enter vertex editing mode. Some TrueType fonts support different styles, such as bold or italic.
To change the coordinates of an existing point using the keyboard 1 Select an entity such as a line in the drawing. The Leader Dimension Text dialog box appears. The Grid edit bar has many controls similar to those found on the Grid page of the Drawing Options dialog box, including those that control: Aktosketch settings control how AutoSketch formats numbers for output.
Once you create a duplicate parallel or offset entity, it becomes a separate independent entity. Page 3 Click two or more points to define the sides of the polygon. These menus are context sensitive—that is, they contain choices that are applicable in the context of your current situation.
Organizing Reports 6 optional Click the Copy button to copy the report data to the Clipboard. When you open a drawing file, AutoSketch displays the drawing in a new window on top of any open drawing windows. Repeating Commands Repeating Commands Sometimes you may need to perform the same edit or draw operation several times throughout the drawing. Page 4 optional Repeat steps 2 and 3 to enter another point. Advanced topics, such as information on tracing, importing and exporting, and customizing AutoSketch, are found exclu- sively in online Help.
The default location of the about point varies with the entity you select. If a selection set exists, it is temporarily suspended. For exam- ple, if a line has one endpoint in the marquee and one out, the point outside the marquee stays in place while AutoSketch moves the point in the marquee. AutoSketch removes the shape of the first poly- gon from the second.
You can use an arc to show the direc- tion a door swings, a rounded wall, and so on. However, guidelines behave like the reference grid—while they are saved as part of the drawing, they are not actual drawing entities and only provide a drawing reference. Selecting All Entities in a Drawing With a single command you can select every entity in the drawing except those on background layers and masked layers.
You handbuc use a marker to note the Selecting a marker type location of a specific coordinate, the endpoint of a line, directional flow, and autosietch on. When this box is checked, the New dialog box appears when you click New on the File menu. This is a percentage of the distance between the entity and the vanishing point represented by the pointer at which AutoSketch will draw the transformed copy. Basepoint Angle Height Width You can edit these properties by selecting the marker and changing the settings on the edit bar.
To enter a point from the keyboard using absolute isometric coordinates 1 While in a drawing mode, type A to switch to absolute snap. However, you can print using any installed printer. Click the portion of the entity you want to keep, near to the point of intersection with the first entity. Page 74 There are three isometric grid types to choose from—each offering a different drawing plane for the snap grid.
The File page of the Drawing Options dialog box lets you specify whether AutoSketch should create backup files when you save a file, whether it should automatically save the current file at a time interval set by you, and whether you want the File New dialog box or the Start Up dialog box to appear when you click New on the File menu, or start AutoSketch.

Kazibar Page 45 Combining two drawings you must open it—that is, display it on your screen. X-and y-coordinates express location in terms of hori- zontal and vertical distances from another point. Page value The specific numeric or textual information assigned to a Database Field. Drawing Irregular Polygons Drawing Irregular Polygons An irregular polygon might be a simple triangle or it could contain hundreds of segments. To place a symbol while scaling it and aligning it to points 1 Click the Hanbuch page tab on the Content Librarian. Page inscribed polygon A regular polygon whose vertices fall on a defining circle.
Goltizshura AutoSketch draws a regular polygon in relation to an invisible reference circle. You can use this technique to change the angle of the dimension line or to move the dimension label. See also symbol library. Isometric Top aligns the snap and line grids along and degree axes. The edit bar displays tools for drawing guidelines. Baseline Dimensions In baseline dimensioning, each dimension in the series seems to extend from the same extension line. To place the drawing origin at the lower-left hand corner or center of the page 1 On the Tools menu, click Drawing Options.
