Description
Extend segments at the marked vertices. Different construction methods are
available:
 Distance: Extend the segment by a
distance to be
constructed.
 To point: Extend the segment to the projection of a
point to be constructed.
 Line/circle: Extend the segment to the intersection with a
line or a
circle to be constructed.
In case of multiple intersection points the segment is extended to
the nearest intersection point. To extend to a specific intersection point the
command must be issued repeatedly.
The operation is supported by components of type Line, Arc and Path.
Bezier curve segments are extended in the direction of the connection line
between their end points.
This command can only be used to extend segments. To trim segments see
trim.
