Creates a point object.

PointsNot available on the ribbon
in the current workspace.
Points can act as nodes to which you can snap
objects. You can specify a full three-dimensional location for a
point. The current elevation is assumed if you omit the Z coordinate
The PDMODE and PDSIZE system variables
control the appearance of point objects. PDMODE values 0, 2, 3,
and 4 specify a figure to draw through the point. A value of 1 specifies
that nothing is displayed.
Specifying the value 32, 64, or 96 selects a
shape to draw around the point, in addition to the figure drawn
PDSIZE controls the size of the point figures,
except for PDMODE values 0 and 1. A setting of 0 generates the point
at 5 percent of the drawing area height. A positive PDSIZE value
specifies an absolute size for the point figures. A negative value
is interpreted as a percentage of the viewport size.
After you change PDMODE and PDSIZE, the appearance
of existing points changes the next time the drawing is regenerated.
You can use MEASURE and
DIVIDE to create points along an object. Use DDPTYPE to specify
point size and styles easily.
