This can for example be used to locate the center of a rectangle.
This concept is also referred to as 'combining coordinates', 'point filtering' or 'coordinate filtering'.

  2. Click a position in the drawing to lock the X coordinate at that position.
  3. Click a position in the drawing to lock the Y coordinate at that position.
