One "Step" Won't Anchor

CharoCharo Member Posts: 575
Why won't the second piece of roof, or step, from bottom going up, anchor?  The anchor tool won't show a yellow light on this step so I can anchor it.  P. S.  I know the top of the roof is not anchored; a second popup is going to be behind this one.

Ignore above please.  I still don't know why the anchor tool wouldn't work but I was able to bring in a rectangle and put it where it needs to be, and it anchored.

    its because that (red arrows) step of not horizontal  if you set snapping to 1/128 and use the croping to just shave of a little then you get the yellow line then

    did you draw the steps in PCS ?  how? the arched step function ?   if so I can't think how it got that way

    i also spotted a issue in the corner (green arrow) which is why the little spike is there

    Thanks @Crazy_Mr_Zing.  I did draw the lines in PCS with the draw function and one of them was crooked somehow and I did crop it.  Another interesting lesson.  Was able to fix the green arrows and then anchor the red arrows manually.  After all that my plan didn't work.  Making double popups successfully is HARD!  Especially when using arches or steps like this.  I always forgot the length needed to make such designs pop out.

    Besides that I still can't cut.  Waiting for Ron to get back to me.  Thanks so much for your help.  I love reading just about everything you post and did I remember to tell you your Tea House is gorgeous?

    yes i learn a lesson with my double story tea house that is just because you can make it PCS and it looks to fold nicely that does always translate to a working card when you cut it .  after much trying i actually resorted to a enginering simulator to attempt to work out the link and levers etc its a bit like virtual meccano construction toy if you know what that is
    i sort of built the side view so i could observe all the bits folding
    sort that pushes that bit and that bit pushes then next. rather a long dirversion form a popup card ?????
