    Question Draw line tangent from small circle to large circle

    I just loaded V6 2D on my computer.

    I was just practicing drawing lines and circles as well as dim`s.
    Easy to do and accurate with no problems, but when I try to draw a line
    across the tangent points of two different size circles I can`t seem to do it.

    Is this hard to do? The tutorial does not (can`t find this problem ) cover this directly.

    Thanks, weddleton

    Might not work with your version, but worth a try.

    I don't know why the link I posted on the first line will not work.
