Description

This command controls the angle/distance cursor. The adc command with no arguments toggles the display of the angle/distance cursor (ADC). Note that the -i option is ignored when getting values or when used with subcommands where this option makes no sense. You can also control the position, angles, and radius of the ADC using a knob or the knob command.

Example(s)

Toggle display of the angle/distance cursor
Set angle1 to 37.5˚
