Command: HOSEBIB

[if the object selected is a line or polyline]

Select wall line:

Select a wall line (or any object) at the point that you would like to insert the symbol.

Select side of wall for symbol:

Select a point on the side of the line for the symbol. Because the type of object selected was a line, polyline, or lwpolyline the command can determine the correct perpendicular angle to insert the block. There is no need to "show" or enter the exact angle the symbol should be inserted.

--The symbol is inserted.--


[if the object selected is something else]

Select wall line:

Select a wall line (or any object) at the point that you would like to insert the symbol. Since the entity type is NOT a line, polyline, or lwpolyline this command cannot figure out the rotation angle for you automatically. You will have to show it the insertion angle.

Specify insertion angle or use the [A]ng[L]e/[D]irection dialog:

Ortho is turned on for this point. (Turn it off with <F8> or to draw other angles.) Select a point, enter an angle, or press "A", "L", or "D" and use the AngLe/Direction dialog.

--The symbol is inserted.--
