Hrm.  Okay, I can make four angled construction lines, however there
are only three intersections.  How do I define a point to snap to at
the fourth intersection?

Slowly .... I'm figuring out how to use this program.  It begs for a

If I have something selected, and then choose Modify/Delete, shouldn't
that delete the selected things?

Shouldn't the scroll wheel zoom in and out on the thing you're
pointing at?

If I select four points and the four segments connecting them, and
then Edit/Copy, shouldn't Edit/Paste insert four points and segments?
I'm only getting one point inserted.

Indeed!  They're practically a requirement.

Maybe better for me to add the features I want within PythonCAD
.... like rotate.
