Extrusion Options

There is an “Extrusion” panel in the Options Dialog where user-configurable aspects of the Extrusion pane may be set. (Access the dialog from the Tools Menu.)

Increment for snap-to-angle: sets the snap-to angle when drawing edges with the point-edge tool while the Ctrl key is pressed. This behavior is described in the topic Creating Points and Edges - Keyboard Modifiers.

Default edge type: designates the edge type for any newly drawn edge (which will be one of “line”, “curve”, or “arc” based on the setting here).

Point-edge mode: determines the method for adding edges in the construction view. Segment mode adds one edge at a time. Polyline mode adds edges continuously until you exit the mode.
