  1. From the Format menu, choose Point Style.
  2. In the Point Style dialog box, select a point style.
  3. Under Point Size, specify a size.
  4. Choose OK.

Command line DDPTYPE

  1. From the Draw menu, choose Point Single Point.
  2. Specify the point location.

System variables PDMODE sets different point styles. PDSIZE controls point size.

Hi, I just wondering, how can I snap to point objects, because I tried to draw a line that connected 2 points and, I couldn’t snap to those points.

Thank you
