Type in the distance to be projection along the reference string and hit the <Enter> key. See below to determine whether a positive or negative direction is required.
After hitting the <Enter> key the new point will be created.
Use a String Inquire to check the details of the new point.
Note: The newly created point, is only a single point not associated or attached with the string that was selected in the create option.
Note: Turn the model onto the screen if the point is not shown.
Note: If a second point is to be created the option is still active in the project until another option is selected, or it is cancelled. The user can select the next start position and use the option again.
