Working with coordinates - Using Cartesian coordinates

Finding the coordinates of a point

To find the x,y,z-coordinates for a point on an entity, such as the endpoint of a line, select an appropriate entity snap (such as Endpoint) before selecting the entity. If you have no entity snaps set, the x,y-coordinates of the point you specified is displayed, with the z-coordinate equal to the current elevation.

To find the coordinate of a point in the drawing
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Tools > Inquiry > ID Point.
  3. On the Inquiry toolbar, click the Locate Point tool (
  4. ).
  • Type idpoint and then press Enter.
  • Select the point for which you want to find the coordinates.

If the command bar is activated, the x,y,z-coordinates for the point you selected display in the command bar.

If the command bar is not activated, the Prompt History window displays, showing the x,y,z-coordinates for the point you selected.
