Co ordinate boxes V102 disappeared

N/A
I changed over to V102 and got the co ordinate boxes that I use the last time I used it.

Opened a drawing this morning and the co ordinate boxes are no longer there and I can't find out how to make them reappear.

According to the grid options command I should be able to turn the co ordinate display on or off in the grid options.
This is missing from the grid options for some reason.

What I can't understand is that I was able to get the co ordinate boxes when I first installed V102 and now they're no longer available.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled V102 but it's still the same.

Allan,
I assume you are talking about the coordinate keyins that were on the Grid
command bar.
These were removed. Associative dimensions will most likely accomplish what
you are trying to do.
Try using dimensions to drive your geometry to the specific location.

Hi Rick,

What I can't understand is that the first time I used V102 I was able to get the co ordinate boxes and I was getting used to using V102 and did a couple of drawings.

Now when I open it the co ordinate boxes are no longer available.
I can't see the reasoning behind omitting the co ordinate boxes in the software for people that want to use them.

TBH,I don't know how to use dimensions to drive the geometry.

I've just opened a new drawing and set a new origin as somewhere approx in the middle.
Then I've drawn a circle and used edit properties to put in zero X and Y co ordinates and clicked okay...the circle then just centres itself on the bottom LH corner which is the opening origin and not on the new origin specified.

Allan,
The object properties and the grid origin are not tied together.
Objects properties are based on the sheet origin or zero.
The reason for this is that the grid origin is movable at any time.
You can move the grid without affecting any objects.
If you want to locate the circle center at the grid origin, simply enable
the display of the grid.
Check the radio button to snap to points also. You can now drag and drop the
circle center handle on any point of the grid.
There is a replacement for the keyins in planning, I just can't say when it
will make a release.

Thanks Rick,

I'll be glad when the keyin boxes are done.
I still don't understand why I could get them previously in V102 when I first used it but now they've disappeared.
From memory they were on the bottom LH side,possibly on the prompt bar.

Allan,
You can enable them by adding the Grid command to the quick bar at the top
and then running the Grid command.
This will add the keyins back in, but is unreliable as to when the values
will go to the commands.

Hi Rick,

That's what I did when I first got them,but it doesn't work now for some reason.

Allan,
I suspected that would be the case.
As I stated, a replacement is in the planning.
