**Commands:** po, point

*Specify location*

Click in the drawing area or enter one of the following in the command line:

- 3,4 - to create a point at coordinates x=3, y=4.

- @3,4 - to create a point located relative to the last point created; this is vector addition (x,y)+(3,4) where x and y are the coordinates of the last point created.

- 50<45 - to create a point 50 units from the origin, and rotated 45 degrees around the origin. The positive x axis is at 0 degrees, the positive y axis is at 90 degrees.

- @50<45 - to create a point 50 units away from the last point, and rotated 45 degrees around that point.
