Video Transcript

How are you guys in today's video of Lexi Starter, we're gonna be looking at the snap to edge feature, but before that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za c o dot z A. We make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos, and we have daily updates that was back in the programme here. Now, just a reminder. This is a miniseries on snapping objects. We've covered quite a few already, and, uh, I will also leave relevant length and descriptions you guys can actually follow along. So today we're gonna be looking at the snap page. As you can imagine, it's quite self explanatory where you're gonna snap things to the edge of different objects. Now, in order to locate your snapping, we want to navigate to our main menu on top here. Got to love you. Navigate down toy find snap under the extra menu on the snap, you'll see we've got quite a few options here, so at the moment we've got your snap your age. Now just keep in mind if it's got a little blue block, as you can see, if I help offered. That means it is enabled. If we had to click that again, it will disable and what I like to also do so I don't have to come to this menu every time as I click the snap toolbar and then we'll open this little tour year on the right. You might have to dock it yourself. I simply just dragging it into this area. Then if you hover your mouse over these icons, they will tell you what they me know what they do. So is it snapped the edge to ready and able, and we've got show guides enabled, which does not really matter. The moment I'll snap to guides is not in, so we can leave that one on now. What this is going to do is if I had to. Let's say I select this little circle here, then if I scale it any object that's close to it, it will snap it to its edge. So that is on the vertical plane. I mean, in the horizontal plane on a vertical same thing called Snap out there to the edge, which is it can be quite handy if you have certain layout in your design, and you want everything to be quite exactly, align with each other. So instead of manually trying to snaps, not on line those ages now wanting to keep in mind if we want to snap to, let's say, a circle or sphere, then it It's quite a bit different thing that there's many edges. So then what you have to keep in mind is the orientation or the location of your crossing your mouse pointer. So if we had to snap this to the edge, we go here. We can see it's not nice now. As we move it along the edge, you can see it's snapping it, too, that area of the edge, so it's just something to keep in mind safe. You're gonna grab this. Try snap to a circle, and it's not a line because it's actually aligning it to this edge. Just make sure that you are nicely centred with the circle, and then you leave it all aligned to batch, which is, um, it's It's an interesting feature that it works like that. So just keep that in mind or make your life a lot more simple. And then, yeah, that is it snapping to edge. We're coming close to an end with this miniseries. I think we've got perhaps one more video left and then yeah, so otherwise, thanks for sticking around, guys. And then if we had year to softwaretraining.co.za hat's the other day. Um, we've got a variety of different software to cover here, and also you can isolate your search with our search options. If you do not, however, find what you're looking for, you can always go to your request, the training video. Then we will make that for you. Otherwise, thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
