Tangent Lines & Arcs

After drawing an arc, you can start the command for another arc (or line), and hit Enter instead of picking the first point. At this point, AutoCAD will automatically connect your line or arc to the end of the first arc, and draw the new object tangent to the arc. If you look at the command line, you’ll notice your only option for the arc is the end point (instead of second, center, etc.), while the only choice for the line is the end point/length – the direction is already set.
