Fixed, Floating or Free?

I have always had a little bit of difficulty remembering quickly what the terms Fixed, Floating, and Free mean as they apply to alignments. Here is a quick tip.

Fixed - I pick both end points. It is fixed by me.
Floating - Object floats from one object (it is tangent). I specify other endpoint.
Free - Object is tangent to two objects. I did not specify any endpoints.
