Repair Sketch

The Repair Sketch tool finds, and in some cases repairs, sketch errors.

To open the Repair Sketch tool:

Click Tools > Sketch Tools > Repair Sketch.

Repair Sketch automatically repairs:
  • Small sketch entities (entities whose chain length is less than twice the maximum gap value)

    Repair Sketch deletes these from the sketch.

  • Overlapping sketch lines and arcs

    Repair Sketch merges these into a single entity.

Repair Sketch highlights these errors and provides error descriptions:
  • Sketch entity gaps or overlaps smaller than the maximum gap value specified in Repair Sketch
    Gaps or overlaps larger than that value are considered intentional.
  • Any point shared by three or more entities

If errors of these types are found, you can repair them in the sketch.
