in using the great Draw program, I tend to enter Position and Size information for most objects by hand, even after placing objects with help of the grid.

Using the <f4> hotkey and the assorted keys for keyboard navigation is fast and convenient, however I've seen a program that has the entry boxes for position, size and rotation in a toolbar.

After having searched for the entry fields in the "Modify toolbars, Add..." dialogue, I have not found anything beyond what's offered by pressing <f4>.

Is it possible (and how) to add the five boxes for positon, size and rotation to a custom toolbar?

Thanks for the answer, Bernhard

No, it is not possible to get those fields into a toolbar. But you can use the similar fields from the sidebar.
