Working with Points

Points are often used as temporary drawing aids, similar to InfiniteLines and Rays.

You can use the Single Point or Multiple Points commands to place points in a drawing.

MarkDivisions and MarkLengths are commands you can use when creating points. These commands place points, or symbols, along other drawing entities. You can use them to set out distances along a Line or more complex entities, which is useful in construction processes.

You should set a point format before placing points in a drawing because they can be difficult to see after you place them.
