Middle of lines

Middle of lines


I was wondering how can I make Draftsight show up the middle of lines and the lines that make up a polygon.
In order to move a side of a rectangle now I have to move 2 points, just dragging the middle = entire line like in autocad would be a lot more convenient.



RE: Middle of lines

I'm also wondering how I can reshape hatches. It seems that clicking associative or non associative doesn't make any difference, no handles show up.

RE: Middle of lines

And how can I display the plot style in the paperspace?

RE: Middle of lines

Set your esnaps to "midpoint" or whatever it says.

RE: Middle of lines

To move a polyline - Click Ortho, hold down the Shift key and select the grips on the ends of the line (they'll change to red), release the Shift key and grab one of the grips to move to another location.
