I would like to add my vote for this feature. It would have been very useful in a drawing I just completed.

Yep - that would be really useful to have the option to draw a circle tangent to other entities like inside a triangle, between circles (like three circle with different diameters) or a three point circle with one point is tangent to a line etc..

I voted for this - do we have any possibility to see a list of how many votes are collected for the feature requests and which finally have made it on the Programmer "to do list" ..... so that we can stop to bother somebody ... ;-)
