The tools in the Points toolbox are used to place the Active Point .
An active point is used as a reference or monument point in the design plane. It can consist of a cell from the attached cell library, a text character, a symbol, or a line with no (zero) length (a point element).
The Active Angle for placement is set in the Design File Settings dialog. The Active Scale for cell placement is also set in the Design File Settings dialog. The Active Font, Text Height, and Text Width for character placement are set in the Text Styles dialog.
All tools in a toolbox are not always visible by default. To see all tools, right-click in the toolbox and select Show All from the menu.
