  • Construction Lines

    Construction lines would be a big help. These are lines that extend both direction as far as cyber-space allows and can be set to any angle. These can really help line things up or when using complex shapes. These lines don't need to be removed before sending the final - they are simply ignored. They should be of an off color, or settable by the user so they are not confused with other lines and are usually dotted.

    Hello again Glenn,


    Thank you for contacting us regarding your suggestion.


    Though we do not have dynamic guides (or construction lines) in our software, we do have a tool for aligning multiple objects.


    Rather than trying to do this tool justice in a forum post, I would recommend reviewing this newsletter which provides a step-by-step guide on using this tool:

    Let us know if you have any additional questions or suggestions.

    Yah I know how to use that tool. Construction lines help in much more than simply lining object up.


    Sometimes panel setup is more about esthetics than symmetrical. The construction line can be a guide line but not necessarily want to line the object up.


    But thanks
