drawing (and moving...) by typing line-length

Coiske60
Hallo, i'm a newbe in LibreCad, and coming from AutoCad (that I can't afford anymore) it's a very nice 2D program.

I just found the command line, so I can start drawing with precision.

However, there is a feature with Autocad I thought to be very time-saving: drawing a line or moving/copying an object by indicating :
-the start point,
-the direction (by using constraint) and
-the wanted length/distance

As far as  I know, I have to do this in Librecad by clicking the start point and then giving the relative coordinates of the endpoint, which is more time consuming.

(In Autocad I even used this feature  by drawing first the dimensions as a reference for the actual drawing afterwards.)

Does this feature exist in LC, and if not it should be nice to add it.

Thanks for any answer, and can I do this suggestion somewhere?

This feature does not exist in LibreCAD, it has been asked for several times. I would not expect this to be implemented in foreseeable future, as there is no one to do it.

ok, so be it.  Drawing and moving  with "@[length]<[angle]" is nearly as good.

Felicitations anyway for all the efforts. Librecad is just fine.  I can draw all I want in 2D.

and thanks for the answer
