Modifying Lines by Dragging

To modify a line by dragging, in an open sketch, do one of the following:

  • To change the length of the line, select one of the endpoints and drag to lengthen or shorten the line.
  • To move the line, select the line and drag the line to another position.
  • To change the angle of a line, select an endpoint and drag to a different angle.

    If the line has a vertical or horizontal relation, delete the vertical or horizontal relation in the Line Properties PropertyManager before dragging to a new angle.

    If you selected Add dimensions under Parameters, you must delete the relation to change the length or the angle of the line. If you selected only the values for Length or for Angle, you can modify the line without deleting relations.
