View Full Version : Alignment Point Aquisition keeps resetting
2004-12-16, 08:35 PM
I use otracking religiously, and so I keep the Alignment Point Aquisition (APA) option set to automatic. Ever since I started playing with lisps and and palettes (since AU), the APA periodically resets to "shift to aquire." I think I saw a blip about how palettes may have caused this bug. I have been unable to locate a system variable that controls this option. Is there a fix available?

POLARMODE System Variable
Saved in: Registry
Initial value: 0
Controls settings for polar and object snap tracking. The value is the sum of four bitcodes:
Polar angle measurements
0 Measure polar angles based on current UCS (absolute)
1 Measure polar angles from selected objects (relative)
Object snap tracking
0 Track orthogonally only
2 Use polar tracking settings in object snap tracking
Use additional polar tracking angles
Acquire object snap tracking points
0 Acquire automatically
8 Press SHIFT to acquire
This should be what your looking for.

Thank you, kind sir!
That did the trick. I suppose I was too eager to start setting variables from the AcadDoc.lsp I learned about at AU. Thanx again!
