Or is there a simple way to program it into existing versions (with the emphasis on simple - I have no programming skills).
Well - I have done some further experimenting with this and what I find is that (as noted above) if I draw a line and use Line Divide I can only use the Point Snap once before it disengages and has to be re-set. However if I 'uncover' the points by …

I can now resume what had become a frustrating project . . .
Thanks for this.
Actually Roy, constraining the arcs and addiing coincident constraints to the lines didn't work for me so I went a step further and tried containing the constrained arcs within constrained boxes - an exercise that was both tedious …
