Is there a way to align multiple objects along the same axis as the further most object? As an example, to have the right side of three boxes line up with the right side of the box furthest to the right.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Set running osnaps to END or INT, and PAR
MOVE command, first point on the first box to move from an END or INT, second point on a parallel line you want to align.
Repeat for all other boxes.
OR what the rest of us do (and reason for version question):
turn on Object Snap Traking
Set running snaps to END or INT
MOVE command, first point on the first box to move from an END or INT, second point, without clicking, is an END or INT on the box side you want to be parallel with, then drag down to snap and align.
Repeat for the other box.
OR the 'wuss' way:
Draw a line from the first box.
Move your boxes and snap to parallel to aling.
Since we’ve upgraded, I have never looked into what snap tracking does…I’ll be using it a lot.
I tried to figure out a macro that will remember the reference point (similar to baseline dimensioning), allowing me to just select the objects to move, without reselecting my track point. Is this possible?
One of the few things I like MIcrostation over AutoCAD is its Align Command: in there, you can choose "Align Vertical", "Align Horizontal", "Left", etc etc. Click source object to align to and then you simply fly with it.
I've been using AutoCAD, as well, and the methods mentioned above are rather tedious. I wish some things were more intuitive.
