Topic: Line Angle and Line length properties, could they be added?

Dear Admin

I just had a task where I tried to make a solution using DD ... I was convinced that DD had this options, but I was not able to find it (maybe I looked wrong place?)

LINE LENGTH
First I needed to draw some lines in given lengths, and I notist that the line length was showing up DURING the drawing of a line ... but I was not able to change the length AFTER ... is this correct? ... if yes, then I would like to see this option in the properties for the line smile

LINE ANGLE
Here idea/request is the same as line length smile

Well, if the line is vertical or horizontal you could make it with a flat rectangle, because for these you can specify the dimensions in Properties

Yes I can see that the flat rectangle has excactly the properties that I ask for, very nice.

I still keep my idea open for you .. could we pls get both Length and Angle for Lines also?

Re: Line Angle and Line length properties, could they be added?

To be honest it has been a long time on my mind that the Line properties could use some more...
I suppose a line has internally has x,y for begin and end and length,angle are calculated.
If you change length then it should be from the start point?
The property editor has room for 4 points and a angle...

Hi
Yes I see what you mean, this way it is easy to control/change the length, but it is still not possible to control/change the angle of the line (doing this here I will only rotate the text)

It is now possible to set the start and end points of a line in the Properties dialog in the latest beta
