Automatic Angle Lock On

Specifies if the Angle lock should automatically lock when you type a new angle value into the Angle box.

Remember Working Plane

Allows you to choose whether the software remembers the last used working plane. False clears the last selected plane so that you must reset the plane each time that you begin routing. True remembers the last used working plane. The software then remembers your selection and locks each route onto the plane. The default option is False.

When Remember Working Plane is set to False, the default plane option for Route Conduit is No Plane. Each time that you click a routing command, the system clears the last selected Plane option. You must reset the plane option each time that you begin a route.

However, you can set the default behavior to remember the last used working plane by setting Remember Working Plane to True. The software then locks the route onto the plane that you are using and remembers your selection within that session only.

This option is available when you are routing duct, piping, cableways, and conduits. Setting this option to True when you are in any of these tasks results in an automatic True setting for all tasks. Likewise, setting this option to False when you are in any of these tasks results in an automatic False setting for all tasks.
