Creating a Snap Macro..

Creating a Snap Macro..

Creating a Snap Macro..


I wanted to create a shortcut macro i can type in while doing a command so i can snap FROM PERPENDICULAR but can't quite get it right. I need it to be transparent also, so say if was drawing a line, i would want to type FP or whatever i set for the command shortcut and i could snap from the perpendicular of a certain object. I know i can do it from the snap menu / toolbar, but would rather have a quick 2 letter command to type mid-command..

Any ideas?
