Move from any point to specific coordinateDescription:How to move an element, selection or reference from any point to aspecific coordinate while keeping other coordinates unchanged?Example:An identified point needs to move to a specific Z-coordinate point, theX-coordinate and Y-coordinate should remain unchanged.
Use precision keyin xy=x,y,z and #Instead of the value, use a # to specify the coordinates that should notchange
Example:To move from an identified point to Z-coordinate = 150, the followingsteps needs to be followed:
1. Select the element(s) that needs to be moved*2. Activate the move command or the move reference command3. Identify and accept the point to move from (use AccuSnap or Tentativefirst)4. Enter: xy=#,#,150with AccuDraw active press letter: P to open the Data Point Inputwindow or use the keyin window (Utilities>Keyin)Notice that the identified point is now at Z=150 and that the X and Ycoordinates are unchanged.The # character tells MicroStation to leave the coordinate(s) for whichit is used unchanged.
General format of the xy= keyin as you may know is:xy=X-coordinate value,Y-coordinate value,Z-coordinate value
(no spaces allowed between the coordinate values, values are separatedby a comma).*it is also possible to specify the selection after the command isactivated.
