Commands: po, point

Specify location

Click in the drawing area or use the following syntax with the command line:

  • x,y

This creates a point at coordinates x,y relative to the origin (0,0).

  • @x,y

This creates a point at coordinates x,y relative to the relative zero position. Relative zero.png
The @ symbol means that we want the relative zero position to be considered the origin;
the coordinates are added to the coordinates of the relative zero position.

  • distance<rotation

This creates a point a specified distance from the origin,
and rotated a specified amount of degrees around the origin.

  • @distance<rotation

This creates a point a specified distance from the relative zero position,
and rotated a specified amount of degrees around that point.
