tracker assist?

proto
Advocate

Something got bumped & my typical numerical input is all weird...

 

What I'm expecting: click for first point, then drag for direction per the directional snaps, then type in value for distance in that direction. [The tracker value should be the Distance]

 

What i'm getting: the typed valued is immediately inserted in the X Coord of the tracker box (no matter the direction i've moved in). It's exceptionally irritating!

 

The image below is a line created and the tracker popping up as soon as I start to type for the second point. It jumps to the X field.

How do I get back to the previous tracker behavior of highlighting the Distance box first for any typed input?

Thanks!

As you start to draw something, right click and choose 'Prefer polar co-ordinates in tracker'.

That will reset it to distance and angle.
