Could I point out that you have to have very good eyesight to find the point if you leave those settings as they are. The point is just a tiny dot.

Find how to format Point styles, and you will see the point much easier

4. PDMODE = 34 is my fav

I never use points anyway, I only used that for demo purposes. In fact that is probably only the second time I have ever used it.

command. Point

in the command in bottom line it will read " Specify Point" then enter the Co-ordinate (x,y). ie. 180.736,101.489

7. A follow up question. How do you plot another point with similar coordinates that is connected by a line?

8. Plotting Points and drawing Lines are two different commands.

Start one or the other, and feed in the coordinates as needed at the command line

To finish the line command, when the command line wants another coordinate, just press Enter and the command will be ended.

9. I've tried to feed the coordinates into the command line and it works fine for the first one. It gives me 2 windows for my x and y. Once I've finished that it only now gives me distance and degrees instead of another x and y point.

I don't understand your windows for x and y.

I start the Line command, and the command line says "LINE Specify first point" and then for the next point it says "Specify next point". At each you can type in coordinates or angle and distance or other ways.

What command are you using? and can you post a picture of your screen?
