As part of the AccuDraw Settings in previous versions of MicroStation there were various options available to control the display features in relation to AccuDraw. In particular the option Display Coordinates would display coordinates at the pointer showing increments of x, y and z directions from the previous data point during placement.
With the release of MicroStation CONNECT Edition the Display Coordinates capability has been removed. Therefore, the ability to display those x, y and z increments at the end of the point is no longer available.
Although this capability has been removed in MicroStation CONNECT Edition it is envisaged that new tools are being developed that would be providing better feedback on the pointer. These capabilities would be released in future versions of MicroStation CONNECT.
In the mean time, a suggestion could be to turn on the Running Coordinates within the Status Bar located at the version bottom of the application window. If you right-click while the pointer or cursor is located in this section, to the right of the display, a menu will appear where you can turn on this option.
