When the Duct or Duct Placeholder tool is selected, the Modify | Place Duct tab provides the following options for placing duct:
Justification: opens the Justification Settings dialog where you can specify Horizontal Justification, Horizontal Offset, and Vertical Justification for the duct.
NoteThis options is not available when the Duct Placeholder tool is selected.
Automatically Connect: lets you automatically connect to the snaps on a component when starting or ending a duct segment. This option is useful for connecting segments at different elevations. However, when drawing duct along the same path as another duct at a different offset, clear Automatically Connect to avoid making an unintentional connection.
Inherit Elevation: inherits the elevation of the element being snapped to.
Inherit Size: inherits the size of the element being snapped to.
Ignore Slope to Connect: controls whether sloped round duct connects using the current slope value or connects directly regardless of the slope value.
NoteThis option is only available when placing round duct.
Tag on Placement: applies the default annotation tag to a duct segment when it is placed in the view.
