In general, any time you want to size a object, use the Edit bar that appears
after you place it and input the values there, or use the 2D coordinate dialog

For a rectangle, it's easiest to place the first point, then type or and
the dialog box appears. Input the leg dimensions in the x and y fields (use
[Tab] to toggle) an...
for instance. is
is Absolute.

For lines, the Edit bar is best. Place the line, edit it on the Edit bar and hit

Re: Sizing Rectangle

Maybe this is a stupid question, but I can't figure out
how to size a rectangle.

I'm using a 1:5 scale and draw a rectangle which
should be 19"x36", but I get close at 19.06" x 36.03", etc.

I can't find a way to size this thing exactly.

Any help would be appreciated. I assumed the size would
show up on the toolbar, but instead it just shows a way to
size the width.

Best regards,
