Yikes, Precise design in Illustrator is driving me mad. The workflow is not my favorite.
I draw a circle and then want another smaller circle to snap to the path. This would produce 100% accurate smooth curve.
I added a line that snapped to an anchor point I added on the large circle. I was hoping to snap the smaller circle to the anchor point, but how can you do this without guessing where to add anchor points on the circle? What if I want to change them?
Right now I have snap to point on and snap to grid off. Align to pixel grid is also off.
Any ideas on the best method for drawing and conecting tangents? Thanks!
Take a look at the free plugin SubScribe.
Just a warning: It might not completely work with a wacom.
I think the only way to combind is through a compound path, which limits my ability.
The reason why I didn't use the instructions above on aligning and distributing (as you mentioned above) is becase that only works on two objects.
I can't combind more then two. For instance, joining two circles as mentioned above to a
large circle. Even if I first make a compound path.
