SAFeSTeR Posted March 12, 2014 Share Posted March 12, 2014 (edited) Hi, A colleague of mine is learning AutoCAD 2012 LT and is following a tutorial from someone's old course and she is having problems when using co-ords to draw a polyline. She is asked to enter a first point at 55,150 then a second point of 75,150, which should produce a horizontal line 20 units in length, however, the second point is drawn in reference from the first point (not from a common point 0,0) and produces a diagonal line going up and to the right. Her dynamic input is showing an @ automatically before the 2nd point co-ords are entered, which I know is the command to use the last point as the reference. How can this be switched off permanently so all points are referenced from 0,0? For the record, my AutoCAD doesn't work in this way by default. I feel a bit embarrassed as I thought I should know the answer to this, but it's got me stumped as well as others in the office Edited March 12, 2014 by SAFeSTeR Typo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
