Symmetry Constraint in Sketch


New member
Do you know how to add a "symmetry" constraint in sketch?

When i use "mirror" to make the opposite side, this symmetry constraint will be added on both sides automatically. How can i add it manually?

thanks in advance

1.After applying the mirror goto "add or remove constraints" select the constraint type "symmetry" and then it shows the list of "symmetry" constraints in that sketch. From that list, remove the "symmetry" constraint whichever you want to remove.

2.Use the "symmetry" constraint only after applying the "mirror"
