FS#2042  linetangent can't draw a tangent to arc through a point on that arc
Very often I need to draw a tangent line through a point on the arc or circle. Currently I solve this by drawing the perpendicular in that point and then the perpendicular to that perpendicular. As this problem is solvable I set the severity to “Low”.
But I think linetangent should be able to draw such tangents. And I think this tool should firstly ask for arc or circle and only then for a point. Currently linetangent firstly asks for a point.
I found that Librecad 2.1.2 are able to draw that kind of tangent lines.
And actually the input order isn't important for me.
This tool draws a line from a point to an arc, tangentially to that arc. If the point is on the arc, the line would have a length of zero.
You might want to use Draw > Line > Relative Angle instead with a relative angle of 0.
Thank you
