To enter Side Lengths and draw diagram, enter length and use W ↑ A ← S↓ D →
to draw the side. Hit Q to remove the last entered side, and C to close the diagram.
You can enter multiple length sides in same direction, but cannot go back (against) the previous direction, cross or intersect any other side.
The current distance (X and Y) to start point is displayed below the Side Length entry. Draw a side at 1 of the lengths displayed to get back to a point horizontally or vertically
so you can close the diagram. If the last drawn side end is in line with the start point (not diagonal), hit 'Close Diagram' to auto add the last side and close the diagram.
Clicking the X or Y entry will enter its length into the Side Length box. You can then hit the Close Diagram button, or the C key to close the diagram.
Check 'Splay Internal Edges' to splay internal footing edges at 45° (see drawing).
