Constraining assemblies with horizontal/vertical constraints (by Phil Tipping)
Should it be possible to use horizontal & vertical constraints to position assemblies? If so, how?
The assembly group is 3d so it says to 'activate a workplane' first, and if I do that, I then get 'unsolvable constraints'.
Using v3.0~cb0fdb1c on lubuntu 18.04
Thank you.

Using horizontal and vertical is not available for assemblies, as they are specific to 2d drawing. You can use same orientation by selecting axes, set lines parallel, and constrain points to points, lines and faces of other objects. Note, lines and faces extend to infinity when used as constraints.

Thanks for quick reply Andrew. Just needed confirmation as the docs implied all constraint types would work with assemblies. Point-to-point and lines-parallel are good alternatives for my sketch.
