Angles not defaulting to 90/180 etc

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I would be extremely grateful for any help on this. Sorry, it's a difficult one to explain but I will try my best.

I started a sketch design where the new walls were at say 27.12 degrees to north, so I had the file set up properly with a rotated plan to work on the building walls. Somewhere along the line over several months of modifications, my rotated view changed slightly to say 27.13. I didn't notice for sketch design, but now we are doing construction drawings I thought it better to redraw the plan (to include block dimensions etc) so I rotated the plans to be 0, 90, 180 degrees etc. I set up a new layer with the old layer greyed out to use as a guide. But the walls are defaulting to 90 degrees from the item they are snapping to on the greyed out layer which . How can I make them be a 'true' angle instead of linking to the snapped item angle?

Temporarily disable snapping? In your Layers settings just select "Show" but not "Snap" others

Thanks Wes. We are extending onto an existing building though so need to be able to snap for some items on the other layer. I'll use that as a workaround for now though & turn off snap as much as possible .

Hi Jan,

You can also TEMPORARILY suspend snapping by holding down the Tilde key - such that you can start a wall snapped to a certain point but then hold the tilde key down to complete the operation such that you won't have to fight any snaps...
