Working with coordinates

Using xyz point filters

Point filters provide a method of locating a point in a drawing relative to another point without specifying the entire coordinate. Using a point filter, you can enter partial coordinates, and then the program prompts you for the remaining coordinate information. To use xyz point filters, respond to the prompt for a coordinate with a filter in the following form:


where coordinate is one or more of the letters x, y, and z. The program then prompts you for the filtered coordinate(s). For example, if you type .xy, the program prompts you to select a point whose xy-coordinate you want, and then prompts you for the z-coordinate. The filters .x, .y, .z, .xy, .xz, and .yz are all valid filters.
