Insert Point.tif Draw Tangent

Two different tangents drawn between
the same pair of circles.

This tool creates common tangent lines between two circles, arcs, or curves. To do so, with the tool active click on the two curves. When there are several common tangents for a pair of curves, the end points of the tangent will be placed closest to the click points. See example, where two different tangents are drawn for the same pair of circles.
