I was wondering if anyone knows a way to digitize a line or polygon by user entered distance and length. This is an option in ArcMap, but I would like to be able to do this in QGIS.

Thanks, Ryan

There's a plugin called 'Azimuth and Distance' in QGIS. That will allow you to create line or polygon based on distance and angle.
