|| (Vertex selected only) Displays the type of vertex
selected and lets you modify the vertex type.
- Sharp — Sets the
vertex to a point.
- Rounded — Sets the
vertex to rounded and lets you define the Rounding Radius value.
- Chamfered — Sets
the vertex to chamfered and lets you define the Chamfer Offset value.
|| (Vertex Type set to Rounded) Sets the arc radius
for a rounded vertex.
|| (Vertex Type set to Chamfered) Sets the two (equal)
distances from the vertex to the end points of the chamfer.
|| (Vertex of an orthogonal shape selected only). If
on, the sides adjoining the vertex remain orthogonal as the vertex is moved.
If off, the sides adjoining the vertex do not
remain orthogonal as the vertex is moved.
||(Element selected is an arc) Lets you modify the arc based on
- Angle - Allows you
to change the angle of the arc.
- Radius about Center
- Allows you to change the radius of the arc with the center fixed.
- Radius preserve Ends
- Allows you to modify the arc radius with the ends fixed.
- Move Entire Arc -
This option is available when the selected arc is part of a complex chain.
Allows you to move the arc while adjusting the elements attached to it
|Show Extended Settings
|| Displays the controls for defining how SmartLine
elements are modified with the
|Enable SmartLine modifications
|| If on (the default), modifications to vertices and
segments of SmartLines take into account the adjoining elements. For example,
lines that are tangential to a rounded vertex, remain tangential.
If off, vertices and segments of SmartLines are
this setting disables the remaining settings as they apply only to SmartLine
|Enable segment selection
|| If on (the default), segments of SmartLines may be
selected, as well as the vertices.
If off, only vertices may be modified.
|Minimize number of linear elements
|| If on, attempts to reduce the number of component
elements in a complex chain or shape. For example, a number of individual lines
that have been chained together, may be converted to a line string.
If off, does not attempt to reduce the number of
component elements in a complex chain or shape.
|Convert selected round or chamfer to segment
|| If on, when a rounded or chamfered vertex is
selected, it is converted to a segment (arc or linear segment) so that it can
be modified as such. This applies only to the selected round or chamfer, not to
the whole chain or shape. After modification, the component will not be treated
as a round or chamfer again.
|| Defines the type of vertex to use.
- From Element — Uses
the element's own settings.
- Last Used — Uses
the type of vertex that was last used when modifying a SmartLine element.
setting to set the vertex being modified to sharp, rounded, or chamfered, along
with its radius or chamfer offset. This can be convenient when changing the
type or size of many vertices, eliminating having to enter values for each
