I didn't find a way to find a point's coordinates.


may be a grid along Z axis will help,


thanks

I may agree with you on this, but it may be difficult to see/visualize. This is an early beta version.


How about a styling bar button like the grid on/off one that could toggle the grid from xy to yz or xz. This could reduce the confusion of three grids.


Or place make a grid available when a particular plane is head on with the current three buttons. [size=85]edit[/size]

from left to right:


normal view, xy view, xz view, yz view, grid size changer (?)


Could we add a grid when in these views? xy-view currently has one.

Set the label to "Name & Value" or "Value" (or just open the Algebra View)

I feel that sgrazotis is speaking of a problem in using the point tool to plot points in the x-y-z plane. IMHO, this does not yet seem to be implemented in the beta yet.


At this point, all I have been able to do is enter points with the input line.


@sgrazotis, please note that GG5 is an early beta version and some features are not yet implemented. My ideas above would be nice for plotting points within planes.

Hi Tony,


what Michael meant (I guess :) ) was that you can

* with New Point Tool click on desired x,y coords in xy-plane

* right click the new point, go to Properties and set label type to label & value or just value in

* click the point once more Move Tool to switch the move mode from moving in xy-plane to moving along z-axis and drag the point


Cheers,

Doesn't work for me, move tool stays in 2D mode.


If I create in xy-plane, I cannot move along z-axis. If I create a 3D point, I can move in xy-plane or z-direction.


IMHO, the original question is a method to enter a 3D point in the 3D space. This does not seem possible. I cannot convert a 2D point to 3D with a second click. But if I hold the <alt> on the second click it changes to 3D. Or I can <alt> while clicking in the 3D space and get the 3D point.


Suggestion: allow name and value within context menus.
