During editing, how do I enter in exact coordinates when moving objects?

Please perform the following for an absolute move (i.e. exact coordinates):
1. Select Objects.
2. Goto menu: Edit | Move
3. Type in the "Base Point" coordinate into the Fab It! 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 Fab It! 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.
