About Displaying and Verifying Geometric Constraints

You can visually confirm what objects are associated with any geometric constraint,
or what constraints are associated with any object.

Constraint icons provide information about how objects are constrained. A constraint bar displays one or more icons that represent the geometric constraints applied to an
object.

You can drag constraint bars when you need to move them out of the way, and you can
also control whether they are displayed or hidden.

Verify the Geometric Constraints on Objects

You can confirm the association of geometric constraints with objects in two ways.

  • When you roll over a constraint icon on a constraint bar, the objects associated with that geometric constraint are highlighted.
  • When you roll over an object that has geometric constraints applied to it, all constraint bars that are associated
    with the object are highlighted.

These highlighting features simplify working with constraints especially when you
have many constraints applied throughout a drawing.

Control the Display of Constraint Bars

Geometric constraints and constraint bars can be displayed or hidden, either individually
or globally. You can do any of the following:

  • Display or hide all geometric constraints
  • Display or hide specified types of geometric constraints
  • Display or hide all geometric constraints associated with a selected object
  • Temporarily display the geometric constraints of the selected object

Use the Constraint Settings dialog box to control the types of geometric constraints
that are displayed or hidden on constraint bars.

You can set the constraint bars to automatically and temporarily display when the
constrained geometry is selected. When the geometry is no longer selected, the temporarily
displayed constraint bars are hidden.

Hiding geometric constraints is useful when you analyze a design and want to filter
the display of geometric constraints. For example, you can choose to display the icons
for Parallel constraints only. Next, you might choose to display the icons for Perpendicular
constraints only.

NOTE: To reduce clutter, Coincident constraints display by default as small, blue squares.
You can use an option in the Constraint Settings dialog box to turn them off if necessary.
