Object Snaps allow us to lock on the specific coordinates on our geometry. Before we get started, take a look at my status bar. Notice the only Mode settings that I am running are Grid and Dynamic Input. If you are going to work along with me, make sure that your Mode settings match mine. On my screen, I have two rows of geometry: this row above represents finished shapes and the row beneath represents incomplete line work.

Our goal in this lesson is to take the geometry that we see below and complete it such that it looks like the geometry we see above. I am going to pan the drawing over a little bit and we'll zoom in on this left side and we'll start with the rectangular shape. To finish this shape, I am going to use the Line command.
