Entering Incremental Numbers

Postby mcman56 » Wed Oct 12, 2011 8:26 pm

This is my first attempt at Qcad and am trying to draw a simple line of fixed length. I click to create a start point but do not see how to enter a distance to the end point. The default is to absolute numbers. The help file tells me to click on something but I do not see what that is. What am I missing? Autocad used some type of control character

You might be looking for relative coordinate input, try '@', for example:

@10,0
