Orient by Points

I use the Orient by points command to position parts when doing tooling splits. Sometimes the components are pretty complex and I often lose which three points I’ve selected. Would it be possible (or is already) to keep the selected points, and maybe the connecting lines, visible on screen whilst you select the corresponding points on the second part?

The workaround is to place points, but it would be nice if that wasn’t necessary.

This is v5, still haven’t switched to v6 so perhaps something similar has already been implemented.

Hi MisterB - in V6, the points are numbered and stay around till your done.


Thanks, Pascal. That sounds exactly what I wanted. I really must get around to installing v6 - always something else to do :slight_smile:.
