How do I move objects using "Relative Coordinates"?

FAB 3000 supports both relative and absolute coordinates in all editing commands.

Please perform the following for an absolute move:
1. Select Objects.
2. Goto menu: Edit | Move
3. Type in the "Base Point" coordinate into the command window (located at the bottom), and press key "Enter" to accept.  For example  "3.5,0"
4. Type in the "Second Point of displacement" coordinate into the command window (located at the bottom), and press key "Enter" to accept.  For example  "5,-2.5".
Note: The objects will move a distance of 1.5,-2.5

------------

To use relative coordinates, type in the following when prompted for the "Second Place of Displacement". Note: Relative coordinates start with the character '@'.

@X,Y        
@Distance<Angle

 See Examples:
@4.5,2       : Moves selection 4.5 to the right, and 2 up
@-3,-3       : Moves selection 3 to the left, and 3 down.
@4<33       : Moves selection a distance of 4 at 33 degrees.
