 Draw Lines with an Angle in ZWCAD or AutoCAD

This is something I am waiting to post on the forum.
Let's imagine a situation. You want to draw a line with 30degrees, or instead of that with 210degrees (30+180). So, call the "Line" command, then with the "a" key input the angle you want (30). You now will get a line with 30degrees with the length you choose. Inside Autocad, this line can have the 30degrees that you typed, but also 210degrees (is the 30+180). What happens inside Zwcad, is that the line can only have the 30degrees. So, I request that Zwcad have the same idea as Autocad. If you choose an angle, you can draw with that angle or with the angle you typed plus 180.
Is this possible? I think so!

Hi Filipe, could give me a hand first? I don't know how to get a line with 30 degree that you typed ,Embarrassed i find the line command in Autocad is simple as "Specify next point or [Undo]:", and they don't provide angle option in command line or the for the next point of the line.

Hello,
First call the "Line" command,
"Start of Line" - click a location on the drawing for the start of the line,
Then you get some options:
"Angle/Length/Specify next point" - you type "a" on your keyboard,
the system prompts you the "Angle of line", then you type "30", then the system prompts the "Length of the Line", and you can click on the drawing a point to define the length of the line.

Thank you!

In resume, I think Zwcad must have the option you mentioned: 30 and also 30+180. Or the reverse direction as you mean.
Thank you.

Hi DonkeyKid

You need select line or polyline then: sample

@100<30

@ = you can make lenght line with angle
100 = lenght line or polyline
<30 = angle line

Hello Eduardo,

Let me explain his point, he wants to get either 30 degree or 30+180 degree line by inputting the angle
