Perfectionist illustration

The other day it occurred to me that I really kind of miss the command-line interactions older versions of AutoCAD (though I imagine current versions probably have it somewhere). At least it was nice to be able to give it exactly lengths, angles, and positions (relative or absolute) so that you could be sure you didn't accidentally eyeball something incorrectly.

I was noticing that OmniGraffle gives you the option to specify the geometry of elements via an inspector window, but somehow it didn't quite give the same feel. I'll have to load up Illustrator when I get home and check whether there options for exact geometry that I just haven't founded or noticed.
