Problem with Absolute coordinate inputs

Problem with Absolute coordinate inputs

Problem with Absolute coordinate inputs

I have an issue with the Absolute coordinate input in AutoCAD. While I am trying to define the input for a line segment in absolute coordinates,Autocad recognises them as Relative (it adds @ before the absolute value).How do I avoid this?. Any settings to be changed? Request your support please...

RE: Problem with Absolute coordinate inputs

While I look for a setting, try prefacing the coordinates with NON as in "NON 5,6,0" without the quotation marks.

RE: Problem with Absolute coordinate inputs

Try prefacing the coordinates with * or # instead of NON as i previously suggested
On the command line, enter DSETTINGS.
In the Dynamic Settings dialog box, click the Dynamic Input tab.
Under Pointer Input, click Settings.
In the Pointer Input Settings dialog box, select either Relative Coordinates or Absolute Coordinates, as desired.

RE: Problem with Absolute coordinate inputs

Wonderful! Thanks a lot IFR for your valuable inputs.
