many people know that there is a “Parallel” osnap, but do you know how to use it?
With the Parallel osnap turned on:
- Specify the starting point of the line
- Hover over the line that you want to be parallel to (reference line)
- the parallel icon will stick to the reference line
- Move the cursor in the direction you want the new line to go
- when your line is parallel , there will be a dotted line that appears
- Enter the length of the line or pick to specify the end of the line
