Feature request - relative coordinates

Jim Winkler
Would it be possible to skip the first coordinate if using relative coordinates? For instance, if I move an object,
I am asked "Specify reference point" and I enter "0,0"
I am then asked "Specify target point" and I enter "1,1"
Would it be possible to skip the second if entering a relative value:
"Specify reference point" and I enter "@1,1"? This would then move or stretch immediately by @1,1 w/o requesting a second coordinate.
Many of my moves and stretches are relative. Skipping the reference point would save quite a bit of time.
Thank you! Jim

I know, you can do this in some other more advanced commercial cad systems, but not yet in LibreCAD.
But you could simply click with the mouse somewhere into the drawing area to specify the reference point, instead of entering "0,0". A simplification.

Or typing "0,0" if your hand is off the mouse... I would think detecting the "@" is a fairly simple bit of code. It's a suggestion.
