    Centerline continuation

    Ian Hoven

      Does anyone know of a way to continue connection lines when placing new center marks on different holes.  When I place multiple center marks and have the connection lines button checked all of the parallel and perpendicular holes automatically get a connection line between them.  The problem starts  when I stop placing center marks and come back to it later and want to continue, or if I add a new hole to the part. 

       

      My workaround now is to apply a second center mark to a hole that already has the connection line and start back up again.  It seems that there should be an eaier way to continue the centerlines.  The only other option that I have found was to remove all of the center marks and start all over.

          Don't know of another way other than what you have mentioned.  Need the 'add to stack' functionality of balloons.
