Construct tangent circles in XM
With thanks to Sam Wilson for sharing this workflow on the discussion groups:

To place circle tangent to three lines with MicroStation XM:

Ensure that AccuSnap is on.
Set your active snap mode to Tangent
Select Place Circle
Identify each of the boundary elements.

Note, when the circle is constrained by a perpendicular or tangent snap, MicroStation displays icons representing each possible result. When this occurs, you can use the pointer to select the required solution, or you can use the Solution setting found in the Tool Settings box. For additional information, refer to Help.
