How to move an object using a displacement
CAD users can put different geometric objects on different layers and control the color, linetype, lineweight and other properties by customizing the layer properties. The properties of some CAD objects are set bylayer by default and putting those objects on the specific layers will save you time and there is no need to customize them respectively.
In lower version of CAD, when graphics objects cover each other, we’ll need to set sequence for them and make text, dimension and some graphics objects show on top and make other objects show in the bottom. Higher version of CAD provides transparency settings, so we can add transparency to graphics objects when they cover each other and we can see through the intersection part.
The Stretch command is a simple and special command: on one hand, it’s as simple and easy-to-operate as the Move command, on the other hand, it has different ways from other commands in selecting objects. Why is that? When using other commands, we need to either select the whole object such as the commands of Move, Rotate, Copy, Mirror, Zoom, or click on the part that we want to edit such as the command of Extend, Trim, Lengthen and so on.
