Description

Hello,

It would be great to implement a way to keep angle or distance locks enabled when using the new advanced digitizing tool. I often explore potential road or trail routes by digitizing set distances between contour lines. Having the option to lock distance continuously allows me to do this work very quickly instead of setting the distance for each click. This was the default option in previous versions of cadinput. I tried modifying the now deprecated CADinput plugin to make this work but was unsuccessful (I have a little experience with Python but I'm a trail builder not a programmer).

Thanks

[FEATURE][cad] Implement "repeating" locking mode for constraints

When enabled, repeating locks are not automatically cleared when
a new point is added. They are handy when the same constraint
must be repeated for multiple points (eg adding vertices
which are always 50 meters apart)

(fix #12605)
