Etrack Snap tracking

It's possible to select a point among a path based on object snap.

The pointing is used in running object snap mode. Before using the pointing from an object snap point it's necessary to set an object snap.

The acquired points are marked by a small sign (+), up to seven points each time. After having acquired a point, when the cursor is moved, are used alignment horizontal and vertical trajectories.

To set On or Off Etrack tracking
  1. Push the button in the status bar.
  2. NOTE The function is active when the button appears as recessed.
