**Type Exact Lengths to control the length of an edge or the distance of a move.**

Type an exact length at any time:

- When creating new geometry, to control edge length
- When moving geometry, to control the move distance
- When extruding geometry, to control the extrusion distance

# Control Edge Length for New Geometry

To draw a rectangle of exact dimensions:

- Select the rectangle drawing tool
- click the starting point and type the width (y) dimension e.g. 100
- click where you want the 100 ft (m) line to finish
- type the length dimension e.g. 50
- click to complete rectangle

Use the same approach for lines, and the sides of a polygon.
