Hello,
I'm new to ViaCad 10 pro, but have been working with SketchUp 19, until now.
I want to move to more professionel tools and choose the ViaCad 10 pro.
Until now I'm very satisfy. But it's difficult to move from one CAD to another.

In ViaCAD I'm missing dynamic construction lines with snap points, which I'm able to type the length,
or just hold the mouse down until length has reached.
In SketchUp the dynamic construction lines, gives faster overview how to attach new drawing.
I'm sure other who want to move to ViaCad also need this feature.
It make it easier to move to ViaCAD.
Hope you understand my point. I see the construction line in ViaCAD, but length is fixed.

In ViaCAD, our construction lines are special lines that are dotted and "infinite" in length. They also go into their own layer with right click options for quickly creating and removing.

A line with specified length is accomplished with the "Single Line" tool.

Normally you click two points. However with the data entry window and snaps you can also do the following..

Click a start point(snap actives), move in any direction(snaps active), type in a value for length, and hit enter to create.
