This looks like a Snap to Locus problem.


A long time ago there was a preference called Snap To Locus which drew the extension lines from Loci to infinity so you could use them as guides and snap to them.


More recently (VW2016??) that preference was removed from the VW and Document preferences dialog boxes.


The following one line script will toggle that preference on and off. Just copy and paste this into a new blank Vectorscript and then run it from the script palette.


SetPref(5, Not(GetPref(5)));

Resource Manager

It will open a dialog box asking you to name the palette.

It will then ask you to name the script (I often use Bob as a name personally, but others like something that makes sense.)

The Script Editor will open. In the pulldown at the top make sure it is set to Vectorscript.

Paste the line from above into the editor window.

Click the OK button.

Double click the script name in the script palette to run the script.
