Defining Vertical Geometric Constraints

Use the GcVertical command to make an entity or pairs of constraint points on entities parallel to the Y-axis of the current coordinate system.

To define vertical Geometric Constraints by specifying entities:

  1. Click Constraints > Geometric Constraints > Vertical (or type GcVertical).
  2. Specify an entity (Line, linear PolyLine segment, SimpleNote, or Note).
  3. The specified entity is aligned parallel to the Y-axis of the current coordinate system.

To define vertical Geometric Constraints by specifying two constraint points:

  1. Click Constraints > Geometric Constraints > Vertical (or type GcVertical).
  2. Specify the 2Points option.
  3. Specify the first constraint point on an entity.
  4. This entity maintains its position.
  5. Specify the second constraint point on the same entity or another entity.
  6. The entity specified by two constraint points is aligned parallel to the Y-axis of the current coordinate system.
  7. If you specified the constraint points on two different entities, the entity specified by the second constraint point moves so that the second constraint point is aligned to the same Y-axis as the first constraint point.
