How can I specify an X, Y coordinate for point, line, circle etc...


I would like to create 2 points with X,Y of 0,0 and 2,2... then I would like to create a circle around the points with a radius of 3

How can I do this?

Hi,

in Cinderella 1.4 you do the following:

1) switch on the grid
2) switch on the magnetic mode
3) switch to "add circle with fixed radius" mode
4) enter "3" in the dialog box that will appear
5) add a point at 0,0 (it will snap to the grid)
6) add a point at 2,2 (it will snap to the grid)

done.

in Cinderella.2 you can also use the information window to set the coordinates explicitely to 0,0 and 2,2.

Hope that helps.

Ulli
