All I am trying to do is get a clickable point at the point where a line and curve are tangently constrained. I need to split an arc at this point but no point is showing, and I cannot figure it out.
Couple of different ways (at least 3 that I can see). See attached video.
Draw a construction line from the center of the circle to the line and then apply a constraint of that point to the circle.
Or, just put a point at that intersection of the circle and the line, since you're showing that they are tangent
Thank you for this brilliant demonstration! Got it to work!
Damn, I do (and John) do the work and Dan comes along and sweeps up... you da man
I saw your way, and I had a different way in mind....so I just decided to show every way that I knew how. Sorry for stealing your thunder.

However, I still have troubles being able to select the curve to split at the tangent point. I can get the line to split but the curve is being very finicky.
You need to split the circle before you add relations....
Steve Calvert - you have a chance to grab the thunder back again... lol
When I'm tying to split the circle and click on the point, I cant get it to split on the point, even with no relations.
You need to click on a line or a curve, it don't work clicking on another point.
How do I split at a point then? It works when I split straight lines, but not curves.
For a closed circle, you have to select 2 points to split.

Okay figured out how to split the circles...but now I cant get my splines to split! I got it only once in my sketch and had to get the mouse in the exact right spot to get the point selected. But I cannot get it on the other parts.
Another option is to split the curve....then constrain the end point that is created to be coincident to the line.
This would be my suggestion so you have control over the position of the point
