The Position Tool helps you determine the position of your selected object in the drawing wireframe, and providing the precise coordinate reference numbers for the X, Y and Z axes.
This tool can be used to change the position of your selected object by specifying new coordinate numbers for the X, Y and Z axes.
This window is dockable with a grab bar on top which can be used to move around the screen. You can place it on the edges of the work area or you can drag it off the edge, its own window and stay on top of the Vivien screen. Vivien opens with the Position Tool docked above the Layer Database window by default.
