Setting EntitySnaps

Use EntitySnaps (ESnaps) to detect and snap to geometrically significant points on drawing entities, for example, end points, intersections, and center points. Snapping to a significant point provides an exact position for drawing and editing commands.

To set EntitySnaps:

  1. Click Tools > Options (or type Options), click User Prefrences , then expand DraftingOptions > Pointer Control > Entity Snaps (or type EntitySnap).

    Click Application menu > Preferences (or type Options), click User Prefrences , then expand DraftingOptions > Pointer Control > Entity Snaps (or type EntitySnap).

  2. Select Enable EntitySnaps (ESnaps).
  3. Under Geometry ESnaps and Reference ESnaps, select EntitySnap modes so that you do not need to invoke them as you draw.
  4. Click OK.
