Construction Line:-

This is used for multiple purposes like:-

#. To draw horizontal, vertical or angular line.
#. To draw offset (off set is used to draw the walls etc) and projections etc.
#. To bisect an angle.
#. To check a certain line for horizontal or vertical etc.

1. Type XL (enter)
2. Type H for horizontal or V for vertical line. We will see that a line of infinite length is drawn. Now we can use it for our required purposes like to check any line in our drawing etc.
3. If you want angular line, Type XL (enter) and then press A for angle. And then you will be asked to enter angle. Type the angle value and press(enter). Here we can also press R to use a line as a reference.
