In my example I can’t draw a circle with circletangent2 if the defining point is on one of the defining tangents. The tangency is lost when I try to do this.

I attached 4 screenshots: TheExample.png, TryingPoint1.png, TryingPoint2.png and The_Point_Isn’t_On_The_Tangents.png.

 2042 QCAD BugtrackerQCAD (main)Bug ReportLow linetangent can't draw a tangent to arc through a point ...ClosedDmitry Task Description

Very often I need to draw a tangent line through a point on the arc or circle. Currently I solve this by drawing the perpendicular in that point and then the perpendicular to that perpendicular. As this problem is solvable I set the severity to “Low”.

But I think linetangent should be able to draw such tangents. And I think this tool should firstly ask for arc or circle and only then for a point. Currently linetangent firstly asks for a point.
