How to infer / select the corner of the group?

I have tried many different things but I have not found a way to infer / select the point selected by red circle.


I hover on one line move and outwards towards the corner (red dashes), and while holding SHIFT, I’ll move my mouse to the other line (for the green dash).
Not quite like what you find center of a circle, but works for finding the meeting point.

Move Along, part of Fredo tools can do this.

Nice work, @quantj, you edged me out.

Even though it’s similar, I’ll show my picture as well, since it shows the From Point tooltip. @rzajac, one type of inferencing is called From Point. It allows you to project a point along an axis to locate the start point of a shape like a line or arc. It shows a dotted projection extending from the axis, which is the color of the axis.

You can extend these axial guidelines from two points at once to locate their intersection. That’s what @quantj and I show in our pictures.

Edit: By the way, I’m not using the Shift axis lock, which is optional.

Notice, the group’s bounding box has nothing to do with it.

You can always place a construction point there, inside the group, if you plan to use that corner location a lot.

@Shep, at first I thought you were using the expression Move Along as a figure of speech, like, “Get outa here–you can do that with Fredo Tools!”

Maybe Thomthoms DrawBoundingbox can be of interest here?

Sorry, I guess I have a bit of a rocky relationship with the English language. A result of public school education no doubt.

There’s nothing wrong with your language. I was just making a dumb joke for want of anything intelligent to say.
