How to specify line length, or move line by a specified distance in onshape

Hi, I'm a new Onshape user - First task is set up a company title block... 

I want to create a new line that's 10mm long, is this possible in onshape?

Similarly, I want to move an existing line by 10mm is this possible?

    Hi Theo, creating drawing borders in Onshape is not so easy using the simple line tool. Since creating drawing borders is usually a one-off activity, we haven't (yet) put a lot of resource into it. The best/easiest way to do this is to either import a drawing border using DWG/DXF from your previous CAD program (if you had one) or create a sketch in a Part Studio with the correct sizes of the lines and export/import that into your drawing.
