Not all lines supposed to present a dialog box for length etc.
May I ask you what your goal is to work with a CAD application? Just for fun to learn something new or do you have a specific project/plan which needs CAD drawings for success?
Maybe it is a good idea to look first for basic tutorials or books which will explain the basics of a CAD drawing.
If you just need some help with the procedure of the the single tools in QCAD check this out:http://www.qcad.org/doc/qcad/latest/reference/en/
Or even better - my recommendation: The QCAD Book
It will guide you thru CAD AND QCAD in particular. A really good and easy understandable Book which will give you a perfect start into the CAD world.
