Specify Displacement

Good morning, if there is anyone who can help, I use AutoCAD 2007. When I go to move something, either in model, or, paper space the object is automaticlly set to 0,0,0. And when I hit enter that where the object goes. I have tried to use "Control D" command to turn "Dynamic UCS"  off or on, that doesn't work either. If anyone can help, thanks and have a great day.

For the MOVE command and others, after selecting the objects, you have to specify a

beginning point by selecting a point on the screen with your mouse. If you do not, it will be 0,0.

 

The only other thing I can think of is when you hit [Enter] after selecting the objects,

your keyboard is sending out [Enter][Enter], which seems to me this is what you are describing.

Keep in mind that somewhere along the line relative became default rather than absolute.

 

relative @

absolute #
