How to use polar, otrack and dynamic input?

Polar, Otrack and Dynamic input in AutoCAD


In this video, we will see how to use Polar, O'track, and Dynamic input in AutoCAD.

Whenever our ortho option is ON, we can draw the line at 0°, 90°, 180°, and 270°. But suppose if we want to draw the line at angles like 30°, 60°, 75°, 125°, then we will use the polar co-ordinate system method. But that method is very time-consuming, so in place of that, we can use the Polar form, and the shortcut key for using that method is F10 from our keyboard.

If we want to draw any line at any particular angle, we can draft tools polar setting and select the angle according to our requirement.
A green line will appear at a particular angle that we selected when we will draw any line.

We can also manually add the angle of our choice by tracking settings and drawing the line on it.

To track any point for any object, we use the track option. The shortcut key for using the O'Track option is F11 from our keyboard. We can also track the circle's center point from its vertical and horizontal lines.
We have another option that is known as the Dynamic Input option.

The shortcut key for using this Dynamic input option is F12.

It is used to provide a command interface near the cursor in the drawing area. We can also manually add the angle and dimension for our objects.


  • The Dynamic Input feature in Autocad is a tool that helps the user to input data in a more efficient way. It allows the user to enter data for multiple objects at once instead of entering it for each object separately.
  • Dynamic Input can be used to specify coordinates, lengths, angles, and other parameters for multiple objects at once. It can also be used to change values for all the selected objects at the same time. For example, if you select three lines and enter 30 as their length, then all three will have a length of 30 even if they are different lengths before you entered the new value.

In Autocad, you can access the command line by pressing F3. You can also access it by going to the Design tab and clicking on the drop-down arrow next to the View button.

The commands that you can use in Autocad are:

  • LINE: Draws a straight line between two points or three points that are not collinear with one another.
  • ARC: Draws an arc from a point to any other point on a circle or ellipse. The arc may be drawn clockwise or counterclockwise, and may be open (unclosed) or closed (filled).
  • BOX: Creates a box at the specified location and orientation with specified dimensions and depth.
