I created a polyline using the Draw Line and Draw Arc tools, but cannot get the edges that I drew to connect for a single object. Instead, the individual lines and arcs can only be selected separately. What am I doing wrong?
Individual CAD lines and arcs can be snapped together end-to-end to form a polyline, but only when Endpoint Object Snaps are turned on and Edit Object Parts is turned off.
To turn on Endpoint Object Snaps and turn off Edit Object Parts
Select Edit> Snap Settings from the menu and make sure that Object Snaps - and particularly, Endpoint snaps - are enabled.
Find Edit> Edit Behaviors> Edit Object Parts from the menu. Make sure that Edit Object Parts does not have a check mark next to it.
You can also toggle Edit Object Parts on and off on the CAD panel of the Preferences dialog:
Select Edit> Preferences from the menu if you're on a Windows PC or Chief Architect> Preferences if you're on a Mac and select CAD from the list of categories on the left.
Uncheck the box beside Edit Object Parts.
Click OK to close the dialog and apply your change.
