But I still like trim, sometimes the easiest way to make sure you connect something is to go beyond it then trim.
As said by jmaustpc, I also believe it is more a method coming from the old 2D drafting.
The surest method to get coincidence is to select both endpoints and set ... coincidence constraint.
An advantage of that is if you choose tangent instead of coincidence, you'll have both constraints (tangency + coincidence) in one shot. Same apply choosing perpendicular instead of coincidence.
I would never have guessed that tangent = co-incident. It would be cheap to just add another icon to the constraints menu for co-incident [ -- -- ].
I did a first proposal here in the past => https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 10#p292977
I never had much feedback, and shall admit that I put that in stand by... I'll try to open the ticket soon so this isn't lost.
If you're interested in going a bit further, in the same thread @abdullah explained haw line-line tangency is implemented inside the solver.
