Being productive while entering values in the 2-Point Line window

The 2-Point Line window allows you to be extremely productive when you are entering values. You can use the numeric keypad together with the arrow keys to enter all values. Press the ADD (+) and DIVIDE (/) keys to tab forward and backward through the controls. For any combo box, use the arrow keys to change the current value. You can enter an angle using the following notation: dd.mmss. For example, 34°12'54" can be entered as 34.1254. You can enter quadrant bearing directions using the notation dd.mmss-[1234] where the second-to-last character is a HYPHEN (-) and the last digit indicates the quadrant (1=NE, 2=SE, 3=SW, 4=NW). For example, S64°41'29"W can be entered as 64.4129-3.

If you have multiple line features to add, you can hold down CTRL while you click to add more features with the same parameters.
