I propose to offer the user a input form for coordinates of geometry points. By
this it would be easy to create exact geometry, especially at free form curves
or bezier curves and other relevant points of geometry or help-geometry.

The input form could either be integrated in the status bar on the bottom of the
window, or use a separate window.
additional to the coordinates, further information as angles of
bezierpoint-lines or kind of connection (smooth, corner, symmetric, etd.) could
be filled in this form, whis is secundary important, compared with coordinates.

Open Office has increased the quality of the Draw-Module by far and near to
products as Corel Draw, which has such an feature in the status bar.
Furthermore a good vectorized drawing software can substitute a CAD-software
(computer aided drawing). By giving a few tools for exact handling, the
performance can be rised. I know, that some professional pattent attourneys use
Corel Draw for producing technical ilustrations.

Another reason to add this feature is accessibility
It should be possible to set any mouse-controled parameter
using a numeric value, enabling people who cannot operate a mouse
precisely to use all features of the software.
An "object properties" flying dialog as in Corel Draw would be ideal.
