[solved] Width/Height entry without mouse

Post by ryancousins » Tue Mar 24, 2020 3:54 pm

I'm wondering if there is a way to enter the width and height of a rectangle without having to click up in the options toolbar. I know I can grab focus of the command line by hitting space or ctrl-m, but that seems to only allow for position entry.

Thank you. I looked at the shortcuts pdf but I guess I didn't look hard enough :)

You can also just start typing a number. QCAD then automatically shifts the focus to the first input field in the options toolbar.
