    Dwg files of up to 10MB can be attached to posts.

    Unfortunately I got a drawing to get out tonight so I'll have to revisit this thread tomorrow. Sorry.

    I've attached two drawings.

    Dwg_A
    This drawing has Infer Constraints toggled "On" and the following constraints applied: perpendicular, parallel, horizontal, vertical and tangent.

    Dwg_B
    This drawing has Infer Constraints toggled "Off", the constraints were removed using the Delete Constraints command.

    Dwg_A.dwg

    Dwg_B.dwg

    Both drawings have been saved in AutoCAD 2010 file format so you should be able to open them.

    got it! Seems to be working correctly now, although a bit quirky. I'm sure I'll get used to it over time. Thanks very much!

    p.s. not sure why anyone would want to be so constrained as drawing A, but sort of fun to play with it.

    There are good reasons to use constraints but in my line of work it is not necessary therefore I do not use them although I am somewhat familiar with them. That's about the extent of my knowledge.

    Nothing should be working quirky if the constraints have been deleted and infer constraints is turned off.
