Attach End Points

 

Attach End Points determines what is moved when you move a grab point or move a Bezier control point.

How Attach End Point affects moving a grab point

If there is more than one grab point within the Grab Snap Distance, Attach End Points determines whether one grab point or all the grab points are moved.

 

For example:

Before move

 

 

After move

 

Attach End Points = on

Attach End Points = off

When Attach End Points is on, the grab points within the Grab Snap Distance are snapped together and moved. When Attach End Points is off, only one grab point is moved.

 

Before move

 

 

After move

 

Attach End Points = on

Attach End Points = off

In this example there are two grab points within the Grab Snap Distance, one belonging to each vector. You can only see one grab point because the grab points are in exactly the same position.

When Attach End Points is on, both grab points within the Grab Snap Distance are moved. When Attach End Points is off, only one grab point is moved.

 

To select which grab point is moved when Attach End Points is off:

1. Click on .
2. Click on the vector you want to move.
3. Use Move Grab Point or Move Grab Point Ortho to move the grab point.

 

If you are editing polylines or polygons, turning Attach End Points off will not have any effect.

 

How Attach End Point affects moving a Bezier control point

If two Bezier curves are joined together, Attach End Points determines whether one curve or both curves are affected when a Bezier control point is moved.

 

Before move

 

 

After move

 

Attach End Points = on

Attach End Points = off

When Attach End Points is on, moving the control point belonging to one curve also moves the control point belonging to the other curve. Both curves are adjusted simultaneously.

When Attach End Points is off, moving the control point belonging to one curve adjusts that curve only.

 

During vectorization and drawing, consecutive Bezier curves are joined so that the start point of each curve is attached to the end point of the previous curve.

If two start points or two end points become joined during editing, moving the control point belonging to one of the joined curves always adjusts that curve only, regardless of whether Attach End Points is on or off.

 

How to tell whether Attach End Points is on or off

To see whether Attach End Points is on or off, look at the bottom right of the Scan2CAD window:

 

 

Turn Attach End Points on and off

To toggle Attach End Points on and off do either of the following:

Press A.
Select Vector Edit Menu > Attach End Points.
