Enter numerical values/dimensions instantly while sketching

I'm new to onshape, (but have CAD experience with Inventor and other programs) and am very impressed with it so far, so please forgive me if this is a feature currently available!

It would be very useful to be able to enter numerical values/dimensions directly while sketching lines, circles, etc. instead of drawing them arbitrarily first, and then dimensioning to size in a second step with the dimension tool. This would save so much time!

    Hello drcontempo,

    We don't currently have this functionality but I've added you to the improvement request.
