Smart Cursor Stops Working

Recommended Posts

I have smart cursor cues selected. Yet the only thing I see when I touch on rectangles and such is "OBJECT." No "top center" no "top right center" just object.

Of course this makes it difficult to align 2 rectangles up properly or to even find the center of a line.

What to do?

Sounds like you've got all your constraints turned off. Several of the constraints also activate corresponding SmartCursor cues. For example, turning on the Snap to Objects constraint will activate the 'center' cue, and turning on the Snap to Intersection contraint will activate the 'object/object' cue.

I remember having similar problems when trying to snap to other layers. I've never clearly understood snapping between layers but I think I changed the other layer views from 3d ones to Top/Plan and then the snaps returned.

Sorry I haven't reponded, I thought I would be contacted via e-mail when I got a reply.

Constraints were turned off. Thanks.

I've been using Vectorworks forever doing lighting design and have pretty much ignored the Constraints Window. I guess I must have accidentally clicked one when I was going for Dimensions.

Thanx again
