AutoCAD Tutorial: How to Display Coordinates and other Settings

Another day, another video, this week we’ve got two new tutorials incomming so make sure you check back again in a day as well.

In todays video I go over a commonly asked question, how do I turn on Coordinates in autocad so I can see where I’m drawing. I didn’t realize just how hidden or not straight forward the customization tab is in AutoCAD and wasn’t sure why so many people had asked how to turn on their coordinates along the bottom status bar of their workspace.

In my recently release book: The AutoCAD Productivity Handbook I wrote a section advocating customizing your autoCAD workspace to work better for you. Why leave it stock when you can be faster and more productive when it’s customized to your needs.
Because of this I wanted to make this quick video to help get you started on your way to customizing your workspace and being more productive.
Let’s get into the video, in it I show that using the customization fly out tab we can turn on and off our coordinate dispay along with many other options and displays along our status bar in AutoCAD.
