constraints

I don't know what I have done, but out of nowhere, everything I try and draw now has constraints applied to it. This is the first I have ever seen these and it is causing me much grief. I can’t extrude anything now. How did this get turned on? How can I turn it off?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Rod,

    look under Options/Constraints. You may have Auto Add Constraints ticked.

There's an "Auto Add Constraints" button to the left of the Inspector Bar and Properties icon that may have been hit accidentally.

Rod,

    only too pleased to help.

John,

    yes, this is probably the most likely cause.
    I'm sure I have done this myself.   ::)

I did that several years ago.  Just clumsy with the mouse.
