This command constructs a new active place point using multiple inputs. It allows you to compute an offset distance or define absolute or delta coordinate values. Each input moves the coordinate indicator until you select Accept to accept the displayed location and send the coordinate location to the active independent command.

Move to (absolute move) — These options define the absolute coordinate for the point in the direction to be defined. Select the direction and type the absolute coordinate or snap to an element to retrieve its corresponding coordinate.

Move (delta move) — These options define the change in the selected coordinate for the point in the direction to be entered. Select only one of the directions.

Distance and Direction — Specifies the exact distance the point will be moved and in what general direction. This option can be used in conjunction with the Construct Point command.

Compute Offset – Allows you to compute an offset.

Before using this command

Select a command which allows the active place point to be moved.

  1. Identify Next Vertex by using the available options to construct a point.

  2. Select Accept when the coordinates are correct.
