Now on to the next Practical Exercise we will be making things a little bit harder, but still achievable.
I hope that after this practical exercise you start to see the value of some of these positioning tools.

Hi guys. In today's video, we're gonna be having a little practical with the linear positioning Um, tool. And this will be for the cat feature. But before that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. We make short and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise we head back into the programme here. Now, in today's video, I want you guys to try to create this little shape. So as you can see, we've got three cubes to the right and three going up. So, uh, what I want you guys to do though you have to use the linear positioning feature. So today we are not gonna be using the single. We're gonna be using the linear and you must try to achieve the same result. Now it is not that difficult. You'll see. There is quite a catch, though not a catch, but it's a little bit of a catch if you're not used to positioning. But, um, yeah, I'll let you try to figure that one out. So then, um yeah, otherwise, in the meanwhile, you can pause here. And, uh, unpause, you're gonna see my results afterwards, OK, I'm not sure how you guys got it around to it, but I'm hoping it went well, so I mean, you learn something. Otherwise, if you didn't, it's fine. Let's just run through it again, quick. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna grab a rectangle for now. It's gonna make this a 50 by 50 with my origin on the lower left. Say, OK, then I'm gonna go to linear positioning, select this tool and then click on the canvas. Now I'm gonna leave my X and Y at zero. So my origin points at the bottom left, and then what I'm gonna do with the A X, I'm gonna set this to 100. So we've got a nice 50 space between our shapes or equal space. Then I'm gonna go three. So at the moment we are going in our angle of zero. So we're gonna have three here on the bottom, right? Or bottom to the right. Now what I'm gonna do is the same, uh, approach. I'm gonna go 50 50 with origin zero go to linear positioning again. This time However, it's going to get a little bit more complicated because we want three on top of this. So if I can leave my X and Y zero, it's gonna add our first one straight into this one. So we're gonna have two or actually just one up. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go on my y and then I'm gonna set this 100. So we know 50 is a shape, another 100. So we're gonna have a 50 space and then the first cube only then I'm gonna make the spacing 100 like before. So we've got equal spacing and then the angle. I want to make 90 this time. So now it's going upwards. It's not on zero anymore. And then with the number now, we're not gonna add three. But we're gonna add two because we've already added the first one Say OK, and then there we go. We've got a nice little L shape with equal spacing between And, uh, like I said, the second line you add is a little bit more tricky because you have to space it and also add less of it. But yeah, otherwise, that is it on the practical for the linear positioning. I hope you guys got it right without any of my help. But if you didn't like I said, don't worry, just some practise and, uh, we will get there, but otherwise in the meanwhile, if we head here to softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover. And you can also isolate your search on the top or right. If you do not however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go. Yeah, request the training video, fill in the mini form and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
