Which commands remove geometry from the drawing?
Method For Erasing slect objects
ERASE and enter selected object and hit enter
In ERASE, how do you deselect an object?
hold shift and click object desired to be unselected from the erasing process
Selecting an object and pressing delete does what?

Command used to rotate object in the drawing

1) Entering an angle of the rotation
2) Entering a reference andgle and then entering a new angle f the reference angle
Can you make a copy of an object while its being rotated?
When the copy option is selected on a rotated object
a copy of the object is rotated,leaving the original object in its current position
Process of the Copy Command
Select the base point (non-rotated point) followed by the the second point of displacement (where the object is being copied to)
This Command allows you to choose whether text is mirrored or not mirrored with the surrunding objects
MIRRTEXT will copy text
MIRRTEXT will mirror text on the screen
enables you to reposition an object in the drawing by selecting a base point, where the object is moving from, followed by a point where the object is moving to
Move Command Allows to select how many points?
Selecting displacement option during a move command
allows you to use coordinate values to specify a relative distance and direction from the base point you selected
How do you move by grips?
right click the grip and select move
can duplicate existing objects in a rectangle of circular pattern
you can select the object and the number of rows and columns
Select Object, center of rotation, degrees to rotates, and number of copies made
Polar array moves in which direction
These are used to assign properties of on object to another by selecting a source bject and a destination point
Object that can be matched does not include
Shapes or object
Only _______ can be matched, not actual line lengths
layer Command ON/ OFF
Objects are visible or invisible but are still considered when the drawing is regenerated
layer Command- Thawed/ Frozen
objects visible or invisible and are not considered when drawing is regenerated
You can select a layer and lock it from editing or unlock a layer and edit it with this command option
Layer Command- Lock/ Unlock
Measuregeom and DIS
Distance, Radius, Angle, Area, Volume
Select the object and chose the close option.
Objects must line up or overlap in order to be joined.
Fillet with Radius of 0
The lines will extend to make an angle
Fillet two parrallel lines
You may choose any radius and it will close the two lines
