    Hoi ,

    I think you have to try " Data extraxtion"

    You hav to go to:
    Annotate - Extrat data
    create a new data extraxtion
    next
    give the file a name,
    save
    put it in a folder
    next
    Then you can select the objects you want.
    Select objects and do next.
    Then you can select the properties of the objects yolu want to list.
    Next
    Then you can see an example from your filter.
    next
    then you cab choose if you wa,t an excel table or put it in your drawing as an table.

    Greetings

    Hi..,
    No need of any setting if u open autocad its default shows x,y co-ordinates directions. If u want to place a point exactly on joining of x,y co-ordinate keep “snap on” (F9)
