for displaying and saving to DXF.
dialog, shown below, gives you simple but complete control over how to
view the points. These same options are used when you save to a DXF file
You can choose
layers and colors of these layers, and how to represent the points, as
a simple AutoCAD point or a circle. You can change the size of the circle
of course. The ideal size depends on the density of the list, and whether
you will be zooming into it or generally viewing it in its entirety.
These layers are
useful for two reasons:
So that when you import
the the generated DXF file in AutoCAD (or IntelliCAD or Microstation
etc) you are able to switch the layers on and off according to the
job you want to do.
When you are simply viewing
the list of points within the Pointor program
itself you can use the colors of the layers to emphasise or de-emphasise
the points themselves, or the associated text and/or coordinates,
or indeed the grid and/or axes.
