Spline Point Stuck to Axis

famadorianfamadorian Member Posts: 383 ✭✭
If I draw a spline, then have its end or starting point attach to one of the axis, it gets stuck;)

I can't move it from there. 

Is there some trick to "release" it from the axis' hold?

    The end of your spline has a "horizontal" or "vertical" constraint to the origin.  If you hover over the endpoint that is "stuck" the constraint will show up as a horizontal or vertical line (respectively) within a blue box.  You can then click on this constraint and delete it with the delete key:

    You can also easily find this constraint by checking the "show constraints" box in the sketch dialog, then delete it the same way.

    Indeed; thank you, but I don't understand why it automatically puts a restraint on it, without me asking it to do it. 

    Anway, thanks.

    @famadorian - most of the time it is useful, other times it is just plain annoying - holding down the SHIFT key while sketching will disable automatic constraints.
