I can't get surveyor's angles to work when specifying relative polar coordinates when drawing 2D lines. For example, in AutoCAD LT, to enter a coordinate relative to the current coordinate for a property line that is 12 feet, 3 inches long with a bearing of 45 degrees north, 6 minutes, 7 seconds east, you would enter
@12'3"<n45d6'7"e
When I try this in NanoCad (very cool program, by the way), the angle portion doesn't seem to matter -- it just draws straight up no matter what the angle.
Am I missing something?
Thanks.

Hello,

yes, it seens nanoCAD has a problem with surveyor's angles. I had put it to our Bug list, hope it will be fixed in future releases. For degrees it workings ok, you can draw line with length 100 mm and 45 degrees with
@100<45

Best regards,
Seva.
