Best Answer

Use object snaps to specify precise locations on objects. For example, you can use an object snap to draw a line to the center of a circle or to the midpoint of a polyline segment.

You can specify an object snap whenever you are prompted for a point. By default, a marker and a tooltip are displayed when you move the cursor over an object snap location on an object.

Specify an Object Snap

To specify an object snap at a prompt for a point, you can

  • Press SHIFT and right-click to display the Object Snap shortcut menu

  • Click an object snap button on the Object Snap toolbar

  • Enter the name of an object snap at the command prompt

When you specify an object snap at a prompt for a point, the object snap stays in effect only for the next point that you specify.
