Controlling the Visibility of Geometric Constraint Icons

Use the ConstraintIcon command to show or hide Geometric Constraint icons and bars. You can also reset the constraint icons to their default position.

Constraint bars assemble icons of Geometric Constraints associated with an entity.

To control the visibility of individual Geometric Constraint icons:

  1. Click Constraints > Constraint Icons > Specify Entities (or type ConstraintIcon).
  2. Specify a Geometric Constraint entity.
  3. If necessary, repeat step 2 for more entities.
  4. Specify an option:
    • Show: Shows the constraint icons of the specified entities.
    • Hide: Hides the constraint icons of the specified entities.
    • Reset: Relocates the constraint icons of the specified entities to their default position.

To show all Geometric Constraint icons:

  • Click Constraints > Constraint Icons > Show All (or type ConstraintIcon, then specify ShowAll).

To hide all Geometric Constraint icons:

  • Click Constraints > Constraint Icons > Hide All (or type ConstraintIcon, then specify HideAll).

To reset all Geometric Constraint icons:

  • Click Constraints > Constraint Icons > Reset All (or type ConstraintIcon, then specify ResetAll).

  Note: When you reopen a drawing that contains Geometric Constraints, all constraint icons are hidden. Use the ShowAll option of the ConstraintIcon command to redisplay them.
