Drafting Aids - Line into Segments

Question

Why don't drafting aids work on automatic working planes? I drew this line on the face of my object as a guide (image below). I wanted to divide the line into 3 segments so I could move the switch and the light to those points. No go. When I use "Line into Segments" the lines are generated on the Y plane. Not particularly useful. These are the things holding me back from embracing the working planes entirely - there's no way to draw proper guides for laying things out.

Kevin - Yes, sometimes it takes a counter-intuitive direction. I too would want it to stay on the selected plane.

 

Keeping your line in place, you can place the centre of your switches with snap set to 'distance' (fraction 1/3 chosen from options).
