I have been using autocad for over 20 years.

I drew a line in AC 2011, perpendicular to an existing line

 

the lines attach together,  with a blue square, and now they are permenantly attached

 

i cannot move anything

i have no idea what to look for in help

i cannot meet my dealine.

 

anyone want to start a class action suit?

 

 

 

 

You can turn off the autoconstraints (lower left corner of screen).

In order to meet your deadline it might be useful to first take a timeout of an hour or so to go through the What's New (or should that be what's not so new now?).

Suing people because you don't know new features? :smileyvery-happy:

Read about autoconstrain and the later infer constraints....... or go to youtube and watch it.

I agree that Inferconstraints SHOULD NOT be so easily applied inadvertently.

 

To prevent new Constraints from being added, turn off the InferConstraint toggle in the Status Bar  (CONSTRAINTINFER = 0)

 

To get rid of all the existing Constraints in the drawing use the DELCONSTRAINT command followed by "ALL" when prompted to select objects.
