Break GAD Links Button

The first button breaks any GAD links for the selected figure - this means that it is no longer dependent on other figures.  For example, in the diagram below, the selected line starts at the midpoint of the other line and is locked to the perpendicular.  That is why its selection squares are red (locked to point) and amber (locked to a relationship).

If I select and move the first line, the linked line will automatically moved to maintain its dependencies.

This behaviour is great but sometimes you will want the line to stay where it is.  To do this, select the line and push the break links button.

Note that the line's end points have turned green - they are now totally unlinked and moving the first line will not affect the selected line.
