If you use “Object Snap Tracking” or OTRACK, you will like this tip. If you have ever been annoyed with the dashed “track path” that goes infinitely across your screen, you can change this so that the dashed line only appears from the track point to the cursor. You do this by either going to the System Variable Editor (SYSVDLG) and looking for the TRACKPATH variable or by typing in TRACKPATH at the command line and changing the value to <1>.
Here is a description of the TRACKPATH Variable:
Controls the display of polar and object snap tracking alignment paths.
<0> Displays full-screen polar and object snap tracking paths
<1> Displays full-screen polar tracking path; displays object snap tracking path only between the alignment point and the From point to the cursor location
<2> Displays full-screen object snap tracking path; does not display polar tracking path
<3> Does not display polar tracking path; displays object snap tracking path only between the alignment point and the From point to the cursor location
