[solved] How do I paste aligning other than middle or grid?

Post by turtle » Sun Apr 07, 2019 8:41 pm

Greetings I would like to copy a wall and paste it aligning its right side to an existing line.
I have tried the options in the 'snap' menu, all of them still give me the yellow 'middle' or 'grid' options.
The restrict horizontal and vertical seem to pick arbitrary locations.
I am hoping to paste with an align right? Kinda of like draw shape with size has those options.

Bonus points if you have any tips as to get the text in the text editor to stay a reasonable size while editing
in this format. I typically use A3 11X17 paper and the text often appears larger than life in the edit box.

Ahh to answer my own question 'copy with reference' does it.
