qpnt

   'qpnt' <name>(optional)RETURN 'w'|'p'|'g'|'m'|'n'|'s'|'S'|'u'
This keyword is used to create or move points (see also pnt). The user might specify a name in the command-line if a certain name should be used. To create a point move the mouse pointer to the desired location and press the key ''g'' (generate) or over an existing node and press ''n'' (uses then the node-coordinates). After a point was selected with ''p'' it can be moved in different ways: Either in the screen-plane, for this go to the desired position and press ''m'' (move). Or the point can be moved to the position of a second point, for this go to the second point which coordinates should be used and press ''p'' again. If the coordinates of a node should be used press ''n'' instead. Also a normal projection to a nurbs related surface (from cad-systems) is feasible by choosing the target-surface with the ''s'' key or a NURBS-surface with the ''S'' key either before or after the point was marked. See qali or the section Orientation how to rotate the model into a certain position. Press ''q'' to quit the command or ''u'' to undo the last action.

If you picked the wrong point (the one which should be moved), just pick the same again and pick then the correct one.

It is also possible to measure distances between two pixels on the screen. Just press the key ''w'' on the positions of the two pixels. The distance is calculated in the scale of the displayed geometry.
