Snap Command

73 Views, 2 Replies

Can any body tell me if there is a snap command available to allow me to
snap to the centre of a polygon, at the moment if I want to snap to the
centre of a square I draw a line across the diagonals and snap to the
middle of that line, I'm sure this must be possible I just can't seem to
work out how.

Thanks
Paul.

Check out Tracking (Shift+Rt-click).

Enjoy,

thanks for the reply, the tracking command works ok for 4 sided polygons,
but I can't get it to work for polygons with any other number of sides, it
always puts the intersection on the outside and not the inside,

Please help if you can, I must be doing something wrong!!

Thanks

Paul.
