Mouse menu: Contextual->Base

If the Base button is selected (it is set by default to No Base), a point can be retrieved from any of the other modes. Then, the coordinates of this point, instead of being used immediately, are written in the command line and can be edited before they are confirmed.

It is possible to change the way that GiD works with points by default via preferences (see Preferences).
