Tracing

From GeoGebra Manual

Objects can leave a trace in the Menu view graphics.svg Graphics View when they are moved. Use the Context Menu and select Menu-trace-on.svg Trace On. Alternatively you can go into the Menu-options.svg Object Properties and activate Show Trace. Then, modify the construction so that the object whose trace you turned on changes its position and leaves a trace.

You can turn off the trace of an object by un-checking Trace On in the Context Menu. The menu item Menu Refresh.png Refresh Views in the Menu-view.svg View Menu clears all trace.

Note: The trace is not permanent, it disappears e.g. on zoom. Instead of permanent trace of a point you can use Locus.

Tracing to Spreadsheet

When the Menu view spreadsheet.svg Spreadsheet View is enabled, it is also possible to trace the changing positions of a point in the Menu view graphics.svg Graphics View. To do so, open the Context Menu of a point in the Menu view graphics.svg Graphics View and select the Menu-record-to-spreadsheet.svg Record to Spreadsheet option (in the GeoGebra Desktop version it is also possible to trace the point positions in a list, by selecting the Trace to List option in the appearing dialog window).
