I am a programmer, System Engineer, tinkerer, and part time Autocad User. I rarely use CAD but when I do I prefer to use my old-school autocad skills (remember autocad 12?). Over the years the windows versions of autocad have just gotten too complex (and too expensive) for the very basic stuff I need. In short, my brain works off the command line.
I recently got turned on to LibreCad and was happy to see there is a command line that actually works for drawing lines, angles, etc. However I have yet to figure out how to use basic functions like 'mid', 'end', 'tan' and other functions for connecting up with objects in the document. For example, draw a circle, then I want to connect the endpoint of a line to the circle at a tangent point, or the center. Its very oldschool autocad thinking but its the way my brain works.
In autocad, I did this by typing 'line', then clicking the start point, then typing 'tan' and clicking on the circle near where I wanted the tangent to go. Similarly 'mid' for connecting to the midpoint of a line and 'cen' for the center of a circle.
I see that the gui does this with separate buttons for each type of function, which I could learn, but I thought I'd ask if there is a user-contributed initiative to contribute autocad-like command mapping to the existing gui functions.
