Summary0001075: DWire Command Number Entry Improvement
DescriptionThe multi-point Draft Wire (DWire) command, in numeric entry mode,
appears to require the visiting of all three fields before the [Enter] key completes a single point.

One could complete the entry faster if entry in only a single field would be required to progress to the next point.

This is most obvious in case where one works in the x-y plane where z is always 0.

Of course duplicate points on top of each other should be prevented.

I stumbled on this while working through the Basic_modeling_tutorial page.

I noticed a lack of feedback in the tutorial because the points that one enters are outside the view.
TagsNo tags attached.

Very good idea! The enter key should only hop through coordinates that are not greyed out. I'll implement that when I have a little time.

Now pressing x, y or z while drawing immediately puts the UI in constrained mode, allowing for pretty fast input like:

x 2 <enter> y 4 <enter> x -2 <enter>
