Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Centerlines, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Voiceover] So we're staying in…the 02_TypesOfAnnotation.dwg file.…What we're going to look at now is the different type…of annotation called Centerlines.…Now this is quite a new tool in newer versions of AutoCAD…including AutoCAD 2017.…What we're going to do first though is go…to the home tab on the ribbon.…And then go into the layers panel,…and change our current drafting layer to OBJECTS.…That white layer there.…And then what I'm going to do is go to the draw panel…and I'm just going to draw a little free hand rectangle.…
Just over here on the left,…just pan across a bit.…Click and drag,…it doesn't have to be sized because we're not going…to dimension it.…And then just pan across a little bit,…get it central on the screen like so.…Maybe zoom in a bit as well so you can see…what you're doing.…Then we're going to place a circle dead center…of the rectangle.…Now there's a really neat and easy way of doing this…using your Object Snap Tracking.…So can you see this little angled line here,…Object Snap Tracking.…Make sure it's on.…
