Straight Objects

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

There are several kinds of straight objects in Sketchpad: segments, rays, lines, and axes.

Straight objects are path objects, so you can use them in the same way you use other path objects.

In addition, there are several construction commands and measurement commands that require a straight object as a prerequisite:

Construct | Parallel Line

Construct | Perpendicular Line

Measure | Slope

Measure |  Distance (to measure the distance from a point to a straight object)
