How to change line input from coordinates to length and angle?


Recommended Posts

On the fresh install of autocad on my school's computers, when drawing lines I can easily just type the length and it'll be drawn wherever my cursor is aligned when I hit enter. But on my version at home, it only allows x,y coordinates for the start and end inputs, making it way harder to do relative distances without typing out the whole @ length <angle. How do I change the inputs back to easy mode?

Turn off Ortho and turn on POLAR tracking.

you have to turn off the tracking as well otherwise it goes for the setup angles from the tracking
