The AutoCAD Test Developement team frequently answers questions from AutoCAD users via email. They've offered to share some of their common questions and answers via blog postings. Here's a good one from Dan Kuhmann, AutoCAD Test Development!
Issue: How do I input absolute coordinates with dynamic input turned on?
Solution: There are two ways to do this. Coordinate input is relative by default. You can override this setting on an as-needed basis, or change the setting to absolute by default.
To keep the current settings and enter a single absolute coordinate, type # before the coordinates. Example: #3,3
To change the settings to default to absolute coordinates, set DYNPICOORDS to 1. Now all coordinates entered will be absolute. To input relative coordinates when DYNPICOORDS is 1, type @ before the coordinates (@3,3).
You can also find this in the Drafting Settings dialog (right-click on Dynamic Input icon in the Status Bar, or command: dsettings).
On the Dynamic Input tab, under Pointer Input, click “Settings...” to open the Pointer Input Settings dialog. Change “Relative coordinates” to “Absolute coordinates”.
