How to line up parts against each other?

How do you move a newly created part in a drawing over to and snap to the edge of the rest of the drawing. I have a heck of a time lining up a new part to sit right up tight to another part. Most of the time there ends up being either a tiny bit of space between the parts ( only seen when you zoom right in...only after when I measure the finished part and its not what its supposed to be) or I have moved them too close together and they overlap slightly.

I think this problem has something to do with inferencing...but I am having a hard time to understand just how to do that.

sample problem: laying 1x6 boards side by side to form a table top and you don't want any space between the edges..you copy the first board...then move it over...how to get it to 'stick' to the edge of the original board?

Burntblade. select the part you want to move...then select the move tool...select the corner of the object and click it once...don't hold down the mouse button....move the curser and first object to the corresponding point on the second object and it will pop into place and click it. If you are still having issues you may have to check your preferences for precision settings.

Uh ... say WHAT ??? Could you explain that again, please? I can't figure out what "type in the space you need be it 5.5 " means.

Thanks,

Paul
