Guides

Recommended Posts

I would like the ability to draw a guide line extending thru any two points.  In the short term is it possible to make it so the current drag out guides can be snapped to object hot spots?

That already works.  Turn snapping on, and you should be able to snap guides to bounding boxes of objects, unit positions, etc.

Yes it will snap to bounding box, but not to nodes in curves, etc.  Sometimes I like to place guides after I have some parts of the drawing completed.  Actually I don't even need that when using a certain other Win only drawing software as the automatic guides are more powerful.  When drawing segments if you hover over a node of a nother object guides will automatically appear at 45 degrees or other angles you specify and you can do this at mid points of segments.  Having snaps at midpoints would be very useful.

Snapping to geometry is coming soon.  You can currently snap to key points in our Shapes.  For the less complex shapes (rectangle, polygon, triangle) this will include most corner points.

jtucker,

The snapping is still being worked on as Ben already said.

But you can already snap to nodes in other objects/curves. Just make sure that the objects you want to snap to are selected, and in the Node Tool you must have have Snap to selected curves enabled (first icon in the snap section on the context toolbar).
