I have the origin dimensions working ok. I have set the origin. I want to draw a circle at say x 65.4 y 65.4 and another at x 65.4 225.4 relative to my origin. The coords are shown on the screen relative to my origin, however there is no way to edit them relative to my origin and position the circles exactly where I want them. Going back to properties is just plain confusing. Also if I want to nudge or move the co ord of the circle vertically or horizontal there does not seem to be a way to restrain the movement to these directions ie with the shift alt or ctrl keys or move them by a small increment.
Geoff, When you say 'origin dimensions', I assume you are talking about the coordinate dimension. You can edit the value of these dimensions by clicking on the text of the dimension. Either key in the new value or change it using the scroll wheel. Make sure you have Maintain Relationships enabled for the dimensions to drive the geometry. Regards, Rick B.
