i’m struggling with ‘assembling’ drawings- since every drawing element is automatically connected to everything it touches, it can no longer be manipulated after wards.
for instance, i want to create a rectangular bump out in the middle of a larger rectangle, so i make the large rectangle and then in order to position a smaller rectangle, i make the small rectangle separately, because it can’t touch the larger rectangle otherwise the large rectangle gets screwed up when i move the small rectangle.
but the kicker is that i have to make a group out of the small rectangle so that i can position it in the large rectangle. THEN i have to explode the group so i can make the bump out with the push tool.
this can’t be the easiest way to accomplish this task.
thanks in advance for any help
