FS#619 - Status bar - X,Y etc. input fields

It could be very useful to have in the status bar area - input fields for typing in X and Y position, Distance and Angle etc...

For example these could be used instead of entering absolute/relative coordinates in the command line.

1.Draw line.
2.Start point - enter in X Field.
3.Next point - enter in Y Field.

This method could also be used for specifying positions when placing other entities.

For me I tend to use a combination of the command line/GUI for most work but I think for those who do not wish to use the command line this could be useful.

Sorry that should be
1.Draw line.
2.Start point - enter in X, Y Field.
3.Next point - enter in X,Y Field.

*In fact the more I think about it the more useful this added feature would be to a lot more tools, the modify tools set for example etc... etc...

possibly this feature could be activated via the 'Application' preferences dialog window.
