I'm a new user and am trying different tools in X11. However, for the life of me I cannot find the extend tool (or trim tool for that matter).
I thought that if I picked an interior wall for example to extend to an exterior wall, I would select the interior wall and the
extend (and trim) tool would appear on the bottom of the screen, but it does not. I checked the Reference Manual and videos, but no go. I thought maybe it was left off of a toolbar, but I can't find an option to add these tools.
Thanks for your help.
If you have exposed rafters...is there anyway to get the gable fascia to extend "plumb"...or does it always "trim" to meet the "fascia"? See attached picture....
I know if I change the gable fascia to something like 1.5" tall it will work...sort of. What I'd like is to not have a sub-fascia and get the "fascia" trim to extend plumb like the rafters are.
Can anyone help me I am lost on what seems to be some of the most simple task. I am an AutoCad user and I am used to one or two clicks of a mouse and a task is done. Now I am trying to trim a circle at a specific area. I have drawn a line manually through the circle where I want to trim. I figured I will just grab a trim tool like AutoCad has and just click the line and then the part I want trimmed from the line and its done. But no...I can't find a trim or extend tool. I go to help and it begins to walk me through all the steps to trim a line. TrimObject and ExtendObject tools, I followed the steps starting with drawing a cutting line through my circle, then click the cutting trim tool ( that was what was throwing me off, in Autocad you select the tool first then go to work but here it seems you select the lines/circles etc. then the tool appears as an option to work with.) selected the cutting line and then tried to mouse click the part of the circle to be trimmed thinking it will just vanish on that side of the cutting line. Nothing! Is the cutting line a different line than just drawing a basic line? I'm confused Please help...
Also on a side note. Making a block out of something. I noticed when I try to select an object with the select tool by grabbing the whole object the make a block tool does not present itself at the bottom of my screen. But if I only grab part of the object using the same method...the tool appears.. Any advice would be great! Thanks
