Relative Construction Methods - A Problem with Using Aligning to Surface in 3D



I am having difficulties using aligning elements to surface in 3D from Relative Construction method in the Control Box.


After I activate Align to Surface command, when I hover my cursor over a slant surface, my cursor does not seem to change to ‘Align to Surface’ shape, and nor can I see the black dot appearing on the selected plane at the height of my current User Origin.


Even if I use this command on a gable roof plane or surface, I can only see the cursor change its shape when I hover the cursor over the gable edge and the black dot seem to locked along the roof pivot line.

Overall speaking, I did not get the result I want. The cursor is not constrained to the intersection line of my reference slant plane and my User Origin plane.


Let me know if I miss anything when I launch this command.

Thanks a lot.
