Changing the options on the Snapping tab

  2. Choose Tools > Options.
  3. Type config and then press Enter.
  4. Choose Format > Entity Snap > Entity Snap Settings and click Flyover.

    2. Select to turn on fly-over snapping.
    3. Select to turn on fly-over snap tooltips, which indicate the type of snap that was used to select the marked location.
    4. Select to turn on the fly-over snap aperture box. Entities found within the aperture box are available for selection, making it easier to find and select entity snap points.
    5. Type or scroll to the tolerance size for the fly-over snap aperture box. Higher numbers increase the distance from the cursor in which entities are found.
    1. Type or scroll to the thickness of the fly-over snap marker.
