Relative Coordinates in General Discussion Posted May 23, 2000 Bob, The problem with this is that it forces you to instantiate the object at some temporary location, and then move the object to the new location. Other packages allow you to instantiate the new object at exactly the location that you want to place it. This is strange since the dialog box for which is invoked when you select to place a circle seems to have enough information to place a circle defined by radius and center point. quote: Originally posted by Bob Armbruster: Brian, I use the object info palette window to move objects to arbitrary locations. Just create a circle. Next, with the circle selected, go into the object info window and change coordinates, radius, etc. I love being able to use either cartesian and polar coordinates by just clicking a button. This window is great for resizing with coordinates, too. Select an object, go into the object info window and choose the object's handle that you want to change from. Then change the coordinates or size.
