cursor coordinates near crosshairs

I'm not sure I am naming this correctly or not. When you draw a line for example, next to your crosshairs there are coordinates listed (see attached picture). What command controls the display of those values?

Nope I already tried that. When I turn those on I have even more information at the crosshairs. I thought there was a way to display absolutely nothing at your pointer. not even the coordinates. If you turn all of the dynamic stuff off you still have the display to the lower left of your pointer. How do you control that pointer display of coordinates?

My mistake, I misunderstood what you seek: Click the Status Bar Menu arrow
at the right end of the status bar (next to the check marked dwg icon) and
click Cursor Coordinate Values.


I leave them all cursor displays on, I find the info very useful.

I tried Cursor coordinate values as well but that only removed the cursor coordinates status line at the bottom of the screen.

I did find it however, Options > Drafting > uncheck Display AutoTrack tooltip.

I thought I had tried this previously but apparently not.

Thank you everyone for your help.
