Summary

Parametric objects can be generated, edited, and dissolved with the commands from the Edit.Parameter menu point.

The definition of parametric edges can be done in two steps with the mouse:
- Defining the edge, whose length can be changed and
- Defining all vertexes, which are also to be moved when the edge length is changed.

: With the menu command Tools.Protection>Protect the object..., parametric objects can be protected and other actions prevented.
