  • 19. Chapter 1 • The need to disable a constraint arises when you are drawing an entity. • For example, if you draw a circle at some distance apart from a circle, the system tends to apply the equal radius constraint when the sizes of the two circles become equal. • Disabling Constraints equal. • If at this moment you do not want to apply the equal radius constraint, right-click to disable the equal radius constraint. • Select a weak dimension or a weak constraint from the drawing area.
