Point Manager

Placing point(s) with the Point Manager is the most precise method of placing points as the X, Y, Z coordinates are specified instead of clicking an approximate location with the mouse. The Point Manager allows both control points and origin markers to be placed. In addition, various actions may be performed on a single or multiple points.
