Drawing lines for new users

When learning a new program such as MSCAD, there are always many ways to get a task done. The trick is to find the easiest and fasted way, that works for you. To draw lines between your survey points the easiest way is to type in the command COGO (or pick it off the options bar just above the diagram) and then type in the 2 point numbers separated by 2 dots. E.g. 45..64 This would draw a line from point 45 to point 64. Depending upon how your System Toggles are set, you will also get a bearing and distance labeling the line. The line is drawn in 2D. Another easy method is to take your crosshair and pick on an exiting line ¢‚¬€œ this brings up CADLines and gives you may options.
