At times, the inference you need may not come up immediately or LayOut might choose alignments with the wrong geometry. In these cases, you can inform the inference engine that you are interested in a point by hovering your mouse cursor over the particular location. When the tool tip appears, LayOut will briefly prioritize that alignment as you continue drawing. For example, to encourage LayOut to create a line to match another, parallel, line (such as when drawing the third line of a rectangle):
- Create the first two lines of a rectangle with the first line being parallel to the red axes.
- Click on the start point of the third line and move the line tool as though you were creating the third line parallel to first line. As you begin to move the line tool, the line should appear in red.
- Move the line tool to the approximate location where the end of the third line should appear. A dotted line, with the color of the corresponding axes (green) will follow the line tool to indicate you are directly inline with the start point of the first line.
- Click when the line you are drawing is indicated by an axes color (red) and is directly perpendicular to the green dotted line.
