Properties of a Curve - End Co-ordinates

electrosteam
I use LibreCad to provide dxf drawings to a CAM package, to be used on a CNC mill.

The ordinary Properties command applied to a curve provides the co-ordinates of the centre and the angular values for the ends of the curve.

Is there a way to get the x,y co-ordinates of the curve ends ?

This would be very useful when trouble-shooting errant GCodes on the mill.

Keep well,
John.

I just tried the Info plugin, but sadly, it doesn't show start/end coordinates too.
So I'm afraid, there is no direct way yet.

What you can do is to draw a simple 2-Points line with snap on endpoints from the curves start to end.
Then use Properties tool or Info plugin with the 2-Points line.
When you have more curves, place all the lines on a new layer which you can easy delete after checks or make it invisible.

Thanks, I thought it was me just not being diligent enough to find the requisite tool.

I will try a supplementary line (straight on new layer) exactly as suggested, thank you.
