Unexpected behaviour using perpendicular and parallel lines
Answered
Hi,
Have I missed something? (I've not been using GeoGebra much for geometry recently.) Going back to basics!!!
In the two attached constructions of rectangles, I expected BC and AD to remain a fixed length as I varied the length of AB, but instead the rectangle stays similar to the original one.

Hi kathrynp
Circles have fixed radius...

Hi,
Yes, I had worked out I can do it that way, but wanted to be able to drag the vertices.
It must be something to do with dependencies. I would still like to know why!

My guess is that C = Point[e] positions the point according to some internal path parameter, and that this parameter somehow depends on other stuff...?
I Normally use two points on the axes + the origin but I guess you want to be able to drag both A and B.
