FROM (Command Modifier)
Quick Reference

Locates a point offset from a reference point within a command.

 Toolbar: Object Snap  
 Command entry: At a prompt to locate a point, enter from

Base Point: Specify a point to use as a base point

of <offset>: Enter a relative offset

At a prompt for locating a point, enter from, and then enter a temporary reference or base point from which you can specify an offset to locate the next point. Enter the offset location from this base point as a relative coordinate, or use direct distance entry.

NoteYou cannot use this method during dragging in commands such as MOVE and COPY. Specifying an absolute coordinate, either by keyboard entry or with a pointing device, cancels the FROM command.
