Engineering and Schematics
  1. On the Draw toolbar, click Place Doubleline .

  2. Click the point to begin the doubleline.

  3. Click the point to end the doubleline. This action defines the length and rotation angle of the doubleline.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • Right-click to end the doubleline.

    • To draw a series of connected doublelines, click the points to end each doubleline segment, and then right-click.

      If you close the shape, the command restarts so you begin drawing again.

  • PinPoint, in conjunction with Place Doubleline, allows you to place the doubleline relative to a known point.

  • You can use driven dimensions to determine distances between doubleline elements.

  • Instead of clicking to draw the end points, you can type values on the ribbon to place precise lines. You can also use a combination of graphic and ribbon input.

  • You can press Esc to end a doubleline or a doubleline segment.

  • You can use the software to make an end point of a doubleline tangent or perpendicular to the key point or end point of another element.

  • You can use the options on the ribbon and the commands on the shortcut menu to edit a doubleline.

  • If Maintain Relationships is set, the software creates relationships between the endpoints of the lines.

  • If Maintain Relationships is set, you can use Selection to select portions of the drawing to be moved while the relationships are maintained.

  • When you use Point On, you can draw a doubleline tangent to two curved elements. First, click the curved element, then move the pointer through the tangent intent zone on the first element. Use the software to establish a tangent relationship to the other element. If you do not use the tangent intent zone, the line connects to the elements, but is not tangent to them.
