Fences and AccuSnap in V8
by Marc Thomas - 22 May 2003

I had been wondering why placing a fence did not work with AccuSnap. Thank you to Richard Thomas in Melbourne for his answer to a question about this on bentley.microstation.v8.general.

"If you are using AccuSnap, you will need to hold down Ctr+Shift to get AccuSnap to activate while placing a fence. Other than that, tentative snap while placing fence works as it did in v7."

So when you place a fence just keep you left thumb on the Ctrl and Shift keys while you move the mouse around and AccuSnap appears as usual.

Also Ctr+Shift will turn Accusnap off in other contexts.
