I have to duplicate a surveyor's property description (i.e. Deed description) onto my drawing. I can't recall how to enter a point in degrees.minutes.seconds format.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Entering coordinates is in this format:
N30D20'25"E
No spaces. Do not need to change units to do this.

Other inputs include E W N S East West North South.

To convert this into visible text, one method:
N30%%D20'25"E
