To create a point at the Mid-Segment of a Line, pick a line snap (select the line between the 2 points where the new mid-segment point is to be created). The information panel will show that you have selected a line snap. Accept the position to create the new point at the middle of the selected segment. Accept the segment and the new point is created.
Note: Turn the model onto the screen if the point is not shown.
Use a String Inquire to check the details of the new point.
Note: The newly created point, is only a single point not associated or attached with the string that was selected in the create option.
