    XLINE; BUGGGED?

    this in an issue ive noticed for a long time now across a few versions of ACAD, not sure whats causing it. When i try to draw an XLINE sometimes the command will get locked into either horizontal or vertical mode, without me choosing that option. seems to based on the OSNAP pickpoint i grab maybe.


    attached are pics of the process.


    i run XLINE, pick endpoint and bam, its locked into horizontal mode, very annoying if im trying to make a vertical and horizontal line based off the same point.

    Never seen that kind behaviour with xline unless ORTHO was turned on, which would then of course be constrained to H or V.

    Check that nobody has messed about and defined 'XL' in your CUI to to a macro that looks like XLINE but has a hidden 'h' in there to mess you up, (some people think this kind of thing is funny).

    If not then yes it looks like a bug.

    Hi randomnewb,

    no, it is not a bug, it is a (very old) feature:
    If you have the osnap PERPENDICULAR and a polyline, you would get this effect.
    Turn off the osnap Perp or _explode the polyline, the "bug" should be gone...

    Well spotted Lothar, I never knew that. (When I try it it gives only VERTICAL xlines, and it doesnt matter if its a poly or not).

    Random; if you are wanting a horizontal and vertical xline on the same point then try this macro on a button, h & v xlines with one click -

    ^C^C_xline h;\^C_xline v @ ^M^C

    if you want to have your xlines on a seperate layer / colour it should be like this-

    ^C^C_-layer m construct c 30^M^M;_xline h;\^C_xline v @ ^M^C
