PURPOSE OF POINT COMMAND


What is the purpose of the Point Command? When I set a point that is not on a line,
I can't even find it unless I select around the area I placed it. It shows up well
only when I place it on a line. Is it meant to be a drawing element or a construction
reference? I read that is the latter but how do I use it if I can't find it?
Thanks,
Ron

Increase point Font so you can see and select them better.

Re: PURPOSE OF POINT COMMAND


David, Got it. Did it. But didn't "think" that the point was a line size. Makes
sense since its grouped with the line command. However, there seems to be an upper
limit. I tried exagerated sizes and found that anything over 3 to 5 mm has no affect
on the point appearance.
I guess the points are just another element.
Thanks,
Ron
