Initial CAD-style feature

Steve:
Unobtainium: these are good suggestions, and well illustrated. High on my list to add are alignment, size matching (i.e. scale shape A to have the same height as shape B), paste multiple (array, along path, etc.), and "punch a hole" tools. However I want to be careful and not make the basic operation too complex because that can make it quite difficult for new users.

selden:
"Punch a hole" is high on my wish list.

Raxx:
I've found myself really wanting annotations and the ability to set the unit of measurement lately.

Trevor:
An8 seems best suited to cm units as far as camera work goes, but I know other games use m as units and some mm as units.

In the end it makes no difference so long as you know the target unit.

Annotations in CAD more would be awesome

How about selectable "modes". The default is "basic" mode where the tools available are common ones new people will be using, basic usage tools and "advanced" mode shows more special purpose tools that the average new person will not be using right away, but in any mode all keyboard shortcuts are available. Just a thought.
