[Solved] A Point between a Path
« on: July 12, 2022, 12:23:06 PM »
Hello

I am wondering if there is a function that allows me to move my port inside of the any  perimeter shape[ Imagen 1]. 


In my example, I am using a rectangle shape from the basic shapes, and I am trying to set its perimeter as my boundary, so I can limit my port's motion[ Imagen 1].

Here's method of using PointAlongPath.  The construct is the main shape is converted to a group.  The perimeter shapes are added to the group.  Additional perimeter shapes can be added to the group as desired.  As configured, the subshape angle follows the relative position.  It is not necessary to drag the subshape to the exact position as the subshape will snap to the perimeter.
