FS#1926 - No negative coordinate values ? (DO command)

Just starting with QCAD, for some hours now - really excellent user interface (compared to other low budget CADs, like DCAD, or BeckerCAD...) !

Surprisingly, point coordinates - entered via the command line, and shown with correct positions on the drawing- are not displayed correctly with the ‘dimordinate’ (DO) command.
There are no negative values, even when the center point (0;0) is right in the middle of the drawing, so points left and below should have !

This is intended behaviour. The distance to the reference point is measured.

It might be possible to add an option / preference / entity property in a future version to allow for negative values (depending on support in other CAD systems).

Changed to feature request.

Ordinates are strickt positive.
Most CAD get this question, some adapt.
