Sometimes the intersection snap mode cannot be used to snap to an intersection point because the intersection point lays outside one or both of the entities. This snap tool lets you explicitly specify two intersecting entities and snap to their intersection point.


  1. After activating this snap tool, click the first of the two intersecting entities.
  2. Click the second of the two intersecting entities. If two intersection points are possible, make sure to click the second entity somewhere closer to the intersection point you want to snap to.
