In addition to Guide Lines and Snap Guides, the relative construction methods also constrain the element construction direction to a constant angle or offset. They are accessible from the Drafting Aids toolbar:


They can also be accessed from the third button of the Control Box.


Note: The Control Box is not visible by default. It is available at Window > Palettes.

See Control Box for more information.

Each Relative Construction Method is described in the following sections:

Parallel and Perpendicular Constraints
