You can also type polar vectors directly into the command line, in either parentheses or square brackets: (2 ∡3) [2 ∡3] The angle symbol is obtained by pressing ALPHA leftshift 6. When you press ENTER, the angle will be interpreted according to the current DEG/RAD/GRAD setting, and the vector will be displayed according to the current RECT/CYLIN/SPHERE setting. 3D vectors of course can only be typed in square brackets, not parentheses: [1 ∡2 ∡3] or [1 ∡2 3] <0ɸ0> Joe
