Could someone please provide an example of the use of ::, using sample code and coordinates and showing step-by step the changed content of p, c, origin, xbase, ybase, and any other pertinent variables. I can't seem to follow the example in the XY-pic reference (note 3d, page 7). Thanks & cheers
Anyone who has tried to read xyrefer to learn how to set the origin and base knows what was being asked: the manual is unintelligible and lacks good (any!) example that I can understand. Here is the most basic form of the question: How does one set the origin in xy.
I want (480,90) to be treated as (0,0). From xyrefer, it seems I am supposed to say something like
to get the two bullets to be placed at (0,0) and (0,10). I get "Dimension too large". Okay, there seems to be some point about setting the scale following the colon. But I don't want to change the scale. Nonetheless, I tried replacing the bare (480,90): by
and I still get "dimension too large".
Here's what I am trying to accomplish: my diagram lies between (480,90) at the lower left corner and (1000,280) at the upper right. I don't want a lot of blank space below and to the left of the display: I want to see just this window.
