The coordinate system in AutoCAD is a system of three axes that are used to describe the location of any point or object on a plane. The three axes are the X axis, Y axis, and Z axis.

A coordinate system is a set of two or more numbers that tell us where something is in relation to something else. It could be the distance from the North Pole to the equator, or the altitude of a mountain peak. The most common coordinate system is latitude and longitude, which we use on maps and GPS devices.

In AutoCAD, a user can specify a coordinate system by selecting a point on the screen and entering X, Y, and Z values in the command line. The user can also define an orientation for that coordinate system by specifying its X axis (horizontal), Y axis (vertical) and Z axis (depth).

First, go to the command prompt and type in "line" and then enter. This will bring up the "Enter an option" prompt. Enter "linetype" and then enter again. This will bring up another prompt for you to choose from different linetypes like "continuous". You can also use this prompt to change the linetype of your current line if needed.

The absolute coordinates are the ones that are taken from a global point of view, while relative coordinates are taken from the point of view of an object.
