I would like to draw a line to the 90 degree point on a circle (or arc). Autocad allows one to specify this with "quadrant" or "quad". One would type "line" "quad" and then could select the 0, 90, 180, or 270 degree points on a circle or arc. Is there a way to do this with LibreCAD without drawing a construction line to the point? Thanks -Jim
I don't seem able to get "Snap to Endpoints" to select a circle's quadrants to work.
Starting from a new drawing:
Draw/circle/center, radius 0,0 with a radius of 1.
Auto zoom, zoom out a bit.
Deselect all snaps, select Snap on Endpoints
The cursor does not snap to any of the quadrants of the circle. It will allow selection of any point with only the circle present. After I draw one line (2,0 - 2,1) then click on "Selection pointer", Draw/Line/2 Points, it will only snap to the line's endpoints. Even when very close to the quadrant points of the circle and well away from the line.
Question: Am I drawing in a manner that is unusual? I.e. wanting to use a "quad" type function?
An example of a circle with four lines. One end of each line terminating on a separate "quad". I typed the coords in as opposed to using a "snap on quad".
Wow! Thanks for all that work. Need to urge another update? I was attempting to draw a kidney shape. There are solutions missing for tangent circles which were resolved by dxli, but it has not been released either. Here. I said there were two missing, but in reality, four.
