I started to play with the 2D constraints a bit during the weekend - I wanted to see how it could make my job easier - and I can definitely see how it will. For the most part of my working day I use Solidworks software, which also uses constrains to create its 2D sketches and 3D geometry, one of the nice things about Solidworks is how it automatically adds constraints. For instance, it too uses a means of polar tracking to draw, when you draw a line along a polar vector the appropriate constrain is automatically added, or if you connect one line to the end of another it automatically adds the coincident constraint to the lines. Is there a way to have the software automatically determine the proper constraints to add?

At present the Autoconstrain option is available for the Coincident constraint only: Start the Geocoincident command, then select the entities. Coincident constraints are then applied to all coicident endpoints and centerpoints of the entities in the selection set.

Thanks, that works great!
