Starting Out
Difficulty using autocad 2016

Hello everyone

I have a doubt while using autocad 2016 version. While I enter specific points for line command they do not form a straight line.

I tried to make a perfect square like I saw here on the site on a video but wasn't able to make it.

I'd love to get your help.

Thank you!

Can you copy your command line entries so we can see what you are entering?

Been a while since I used Autocad and am getting back into it. If your line is going somewhere else than where you expect it to go, maybe you are giving the wrong direction. Remember that to get a line to go to the right you are sending it at angle 0 degrees. To go up is 90 degrees. and 180 degrees is to the left. 270 degrees is down. Perhaps this is where your difficulty is starting at.

I graduated from a drafting course 10 years ago, so this is by my very weak memory, and I have not used it since, (the drafting unfortunately), but should be right. Not sure I have used my memory either for that matter! (grin)

Hope this has helped!
