When creating a shape, it would be useful to be able to input numerical values on the fly after clicking on it.

Recommended Posts

When I need to create a shape frequently in design or drafting, I currently have to drag the shape and then change the values in the Transform panel.
It would be nice if a creation panel similar to the Transform panel would appear at hand when you click the mouse on the spot (without dragging) (pressing Enter would disappear as soon as the shape is created).

For small amounts, you can just drag the shape and enter the values in the Transform panel after creating it, but for large amounts, it's a pain.

This is a very very helpful and easy to implement feature request. A simple keyboard shortcut to focus the keyboard on the x/y/width/height fields would already be so extremely useful

Would indeed be also great to have the option to input dimensions ‘on the go’, a bit like how sketchup works. E.g. drag an arbitrary sized square on screen type in 50, 50 hit enter and without even moving the mouse to the transform panel the correct size has been given to the rectangle
