Having placed the datum point
on the drawing, you can then add horizontal and vertical
If the datum point is then moved and repositioned on the drawing, the datum dimensions will then be updated automatically during the next
Refresh command so that the dimension values are calculated from the new datum position.
To move the datum simply click on it to select and reposition using any of the snaps and input options.
Only one Datum position is allowed per drawing. If you attempt to place a second datum the appropriate error message will be displayed.
