Draw circle, set diameter from command line

Post by jarek » Thu Nov 25, 2021 12:36 pm

I try to draw circle in circle diameter mode and I want to enter all 3 parameters from keyboard.
So I click circle,diameter tool, hit space to focus command line and it ask for center coordinates - fine.
But when I write it (ex.: 0;0) it doesn't ask me for diameter. (let's say i want 55mm diameter)
I tried 0;0;55 , typing in diameter, d, d=55 and it doesn't work.

Linux 64 Ubuntu 18 Qcad
here https://qcad.org/doc/qcad/latest/refere ... CD_en.html
in 1) is written "or in the command line." but how?

I can confirm this is a mistake in the user manual which will be corrected.
