To remember a point (assign it to a variable), use this simple syntax at the command prompt.  This assigns the point you pick to a variable named ‘pnt’.  You can repeat this procedure to store several points with symbols like ‘pt1’, or ‘pointone’.

Command: (setq pnt (getpoint))

Anytime you want to refer to that point within the same drawing session, simply prefix it with an ! at the pick point prompt.

Base Point: !pnt
