Move/Copy by Displacement

When moving or copying objects, you don’t always have to pick the second point. Instead, use the option. Here’s how it works:

  1. Select your objects, then hit Enter.<\li>
  2. Now – instead of picking a point on the screen, type in the displacement amounts (X,Y) and hit Enter. (In other words, if you want to move something 6 inches over and 3 up, type “6,3”.)
  3. At the next prompt, Specify second point of displacement or : hit Enter.
Be careful though – if you pick a point on the screen at the first prompt and hit Enter at the second, (or if you just hit Enter twice) your objects could end up flying into space (they will be moved by the value of the first point’s coordinates, which could be large).
