Hi,

I just downloaded Evolve. I'v replicated all your examples, but I stumbelled into to a wall with

the following problem: alligning one rectangle upper mid point to another rectangles upper mid point like in the image 1.

Please advise

Hello,

you have to switch on the "Snap to midpoints (or press ALT)" snap option (all others off).

Use the "Translate" tool to move the rectangle near the target location and it snaps to midpoint-midpoint.

 

Best Regards,

Mario

Thank you Mario, it helps but I'm not there yet, I would like to first

set position of Manipulator to midle Upper point of  the rectangle I'm moving first

and then align it with the second one.

Hello,

you are right, my retangles had the same height. Then it snaps to the midpoint.

If you want to snap at the top midpoint you have to move the local axes to this location first.

My fail, sorry.

Best Regards,

Mario

Hi Arjun,

Thank you for the video, but the question is how to snap midpoints to midpoints (of edges)...

Best Regards,

Mario

yes, and there is a BeachBall every few seconds....

another Question: why  is Hide function behave so strangely or annoyingly ?

everytime I'm getting poping message:

"Some of the selected objects are source objects. Use Alt+H to hide/unhide them."

I just want to hide selected objects.

Objects that are not part of a construction history can be hidden using the H key. The message you see pops up when you try to hide a source object. To avoid running into this message more often, I suggest using layers and hide them.
