Constraint reference parameters: local0 vs. localFirst?

ari_sari_s Member Posts: 7
I noticed that the local entities referenced by a constraint can either be referenced via parameter IDs localFirst/Second or local0/1 (the midpoint constraint seems to uniquely use localEntity1/2).

Is there a difference in function between these?

    Likely local# is used for constraints that can have more than 2 references, and localWord is used for constraints that only have two.  Sketch constraints are considered internal, and consistency is not guaranteed here.
