To Move a Linear Segment Parallel to Itself

  1. With AccuDraw active, select the Modify Element tool ( Drawing > Home > Modify ).

  2. Select the element by entering a data point near the segment's midpoint.

    The drawing plane origin moves to the identification point, and the coordinate system aligns its x-axis with the segment.

  3. Position the pointer on the drawing plane's y-axis.
  4. Press the <Enter> key.

    The movement of the segment is constrained parallel to its current location.

  5. Enter a data point to complete the modification.
