5.5.11 PolarTranslation (objRef1, num1, num2);
Defines the image of any objRef1 translated by the Cartesian offset specified by (num1, num2). This is a synonym for Translation(), rather than a unique constructor of its own. (Desktop Sketchpad converts all PolarTranslations by constant distance and angles into Cartesian offsets before exporting.)
Certain objectNames correspond to constructions that create the transformed image of some geometric pre-image object. The constructed image is the same type of object as the pre-image, and so depending on the type of the pre-image object, these constructions can create points, rays, lines, segments, circles, or interiors.
JavaSketchpad cannot construct the transformation of buttons, measurements, images or loci.
