Here are two examples of using the MOVE command with Object Tracking.
Move with one reference point:
- Start the MOVE command and select the object(s) to move
- When asked to specify a base point, I tracked off of the midpoint OSNAP and pulled the cursor in the direction I wanted to go and entered 2 in the command line.
- With the basepoint now 2 inches away from the mid point, I selected the midpoint of the desk to place the chair.
Move with 2 reference points:
- Start the MOVE command and select the object(s)
- When asked to specify base point, I tracked away from one corner of the desk and entered 3 in the command line. [This is tracking off of the origin point]
- Then I am asked to specify the second point. I then track away from the destination point 3 inches. [This is tracking off of the destination point]
- The objects are now positioned 3 inches below and to the right of the corner of the room without creating any reference lines.
(IMPORTANT NOTE – to use OTRACK for 2 points you cannot track off of the same point for the 2 points. remember to track off of the ORIGIN point and then the DESTINATION point)
