I want to draw a polygon given a length and a bearing, basically a square with length 1m. I can't seem to manage it with the existing tools in QGIS 2.4 (I possibly need a plugin).

  • This is one of the biggest features from ArcDesktop that I miss. All those functions when you right click as your creating / editing features are so convenient. Point at the end of a line is another. – HeyOverThere Oct 21 '14 at 15:17

Given a starting point, bearings and distances the Azimuth and Distance plug-in will do this too.

You do not need a plugin for this.

The "Advanced Digitizing Panel" allows for entering distances and angles relative to the currently drawn path or relative to other objects on the map canvas.

There are also videos with instructions.

The plugin Cadinput might be what you are looking for (https://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/CadInput/). See http://vimeo.com/85052231 for a demonstration.
