A simple linework problem? Am I missing a trick..?

I run into variations on this problem now and then.

I want to rotate the yellow rectangle to precisely intersect with the two blue circles.

How best to achieve this?

Many thanks

  1. Move the box so it is tangent to one of the circles (A).

  2. Draw a circle on the centerpoint of A through the tangentt point of the rectangle and the circle.

  3. Use the Line tangent to 2 curves tool to draw a line between the helper circle and the second circle (B)


  1. Rotate the rectangle accordingly.

Many thanks Martin.

I’ve been overlooking a range of useful command line options for the line command!

Always something new to learn!
