Centerlines in drawings

Good day,

 

I must be off my nut. I cannot get a 'centerline' (symbols panel/centerline) to create. I can use all the others (centerline bisector, centermark and centered pattern) without fail. This first one (with the single line) does not EVER give me the option to 'create' when I am done clicking my points, its always greyed out and I dont know why.

 

Heaven forbid I even went as far as reading the tutorial on how to make a centerline...select that option, click here, click there, when done right click and 'create'. Doesnt work.

 

What am I doing wrong??

 

tks! :smileyhappy:

Select any two points and right mouse button Create.  (or simply click again on the screen at some abitrary location)

 

The two points must be regular snap points like endpoints or midpoints or centerpoints.

I am just going to accept this. I think I have been trying to use it the wrong way (which makes no sense to me, but that is aside the point).

 

Thanks.
