Give First Chamfer Size:
The Snaps and Input Options change now displays additional options depending on previous use to either of the following.
In the example here the 'Distance' option is selected. If 'Snap' was selected the dynamic dimension would not be displayed.
You can change between the 'Snap' and 'Distance' buttons as required. If 'Snap' is selected any of the system Snaps can be used to specify the chamfer point. If 'Distance' is set the system displays a dynamic linear dimension from the intersection point of the lines to the nearest perpendicular position on either of the two lines, click in the drawing area to accept the current value. (The increment of the dynamic dimension is controlled by the Linear 'Cursor increment' settings in the Units settings.) You can type the chamfer size directly into the distance input box and the dynamic linear dimension will be frozen to reflect this value. Click anywhere in the drawing area to accept this value or click the locked button to release the dimension.
After selecting the first chamfer size the prompt reads:
Give Second Chamfer Size:
The above input options are available for selection of the second chamfer value, obviously at this point the position of the proposed chamfer is fixed on one of the lines and the cursor position is defining the position (perpendicular) on the other line.
After defining the sizes the chamfer will be drawn with the lines trimmed depending on the setting of the 'Trim 1st Line' and 'Trim 2nd Line' options in the Ribbon (see below). The default setting for both is ON.
