How to quickly change cplane so I can draw a line on the same plane of the object?

Im often redrawing model elements in front/side views, and I find that my lines will be set to the cplane instead of the object in question. Without changing everything, is there a quick/easy way to temporarily change the cplane so I know my lines are being drawn on the plane of the object instead of 400 ft away? Thanks.

Hi Peter - if the target objects are planar, CPlane> Object will help but the XY is determined by curve or surface arrangement so may not be what you want. CPlane > Rotate > Z may help or use CPlane > Surface which lets you set the orientation. Use CPlane >Undo to get back to the previous.

Thanks Pascal. The cplane>surface and then undo work nicely. :slight_smile:
