Curious kite-like point has appeared overhead

Today I experimented with the Bend command, but when I finished and went back to work, a curious kite like object had appeared. Commands that begin with a snap to a point, as for example a polyline start point or a circle centerpoint, produce a strange vertical kite string leading up to a point in the sky. It seems the system is projecting activity to a CP up in the sky.


Where did this kite come from? Is it a residue from my experiments with the Bend command? What is its purpose? How can I get rid of it?

Thank you for your insights.

@mcg,

disable “Project” in the OSNAP toolbar. If Project is enabled, every point you pick will be projected to the currents view CPlane.

Yes, that fixed it immediately. Many thanks, Clement. Michael
