Chapter 3. Advanced Commands

3-1 Introduction

This chapter explains how to use some of the more advanced AutoCAD commands. Included are the Osnap, Grips, Layer, Block, and Attribute commands.

3-2 Osnap

The Object Snap command allows you to snap to entities on the drawing screen rather than just to points, as does the Snap command. Osnap can snap to the endpoint of a line, to the intersection of two lines, or to the center point of a circle, as well as to other items. The Osnap dialog box allows you to access the various Osnap commands.

To Access the Osnap Commands

Image Locate the cursor on the Osnap tool located at the bottom of the screen.
