    Default Absolute coordinates

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    kindly help mo on this..using absolute coordinates:

    1. L enter
    2. 10,10 enter ( i've got the starting point with this coordinate, which is correct)
    3. 60,10 enter ( when i enter this coordinates, instead of having a straight line starting from point 10,10...i've got a slanting line and not a straight line from 10,10 going to distance 60)...

    kindly enlighted me...take consideration on absolute coordinates NOT relative Cartesian Coordinates...thanks

    Probably the same UCS problem that is making your circles look like ellipses.

    Can you post some screen shots or the drawing?

    (1)line 10,10
    (2)@60,10 << so you get a slating line

    @ means end point from last input point value (relative coords.)
    check setting... seems something wrong

    Set osnap on

    Choose Line

    Choose end of line you want to continue with

    On the command line -- try typing @60<0 -- then enter

    This should give you a straight horizontal line
