when adding a new line with cogo from a file, it seems to load the line(s) with meters as the distance unit. how do I set the units to feet? Also, can a shape be rotated about a point to resolve declination in surveys?

    You need to add the unit name after the distance to make sure they come in as feet rather than the default as meters. So just add 'feet' or 'ft' right after the distance in the string and then the distances should be interpreted as feet.

    There is not currently any support for rotating a shape around a point.
