I draw a line/shape.
From a point on that line/shape, I want to move the cursor to a specific location "relative" to that point on the line/shape – and continue to draw a new shape from that new location.

How is this task accomplished?

Thank you.

Draw a line that describes the relative vector from point a (on the object that you've drawn) to point b and snap the beginning of the next object to point b, the end of that line. The vector line's length and angle data boxes at the top of the screen are relative to where the line starts, you can tab into them and enter them numerically.
