Instead of entering coordinates, you can specify points relative to existing objects such as endpoints of lines or center points of circles.
Use object snaps to specify precise locations on objects. For example, you can use an object snap to draw a line to the center of a circle or to the midpoint of a polyline segment.
Specify an object snap quickly and conveniently from a shortcut menu.
Object snaps include a visual aid called AutoSnapâ„¢ to help you see and use object snaps more efficiently. AutoSnap displays a marker and a tooltip when you move your cursor over an object snap location.
While you work, you can turn running object snaps on and off temporarily by using an override key. Temporary override keys can also be used for other drawing aids; for example, Ortho mode and Polar mode.
