Uses

The main points to use the Object Snap tracking are:

  • We can draw the points, which are tangent to the endpoints of the other arcs.
  • As we move the cursor, the alignment path or line extends to the point of the cursor.
  • We can also specify distance on the command line or command prompt.

To manage the point acquisition, we can use Shift and Automatic to acquire the option of Object Snap tracking.
