draw line at a fixed angle that intersects another line

Post by aland » Fri Oct 06, 2017 3:08 am

I know this can be done in several steps but was seeing if i can do it in one
I want to draw a line from a specific point at a constrained angle till it intersects another line. When I use the "on entity" snap it does not work. I know i can use the trim command to do this but i have to do this many many times and would be nice if i could do all at once when i create the line

Thanks

Do you know the exact distance? If yes then it's doable in one step.
If not ... a two step solution is the best what I can think of ...
