Setting LINE tool length to scale in LO

Can anyone tell me how to set the line length in LO to the scale of the model? When I draw a line, the length shows up in the measurements window in tiny increments. I tried typing in 5’ (architectural scale) but was not able to input that dimension. In SU, we can just type in 5’, press enter and we get a 5’ line. In LO, can we do the same thing? Thanks!

What you draw on a LayOut page is always to full scale. Only dimensions have the option of reflecting the dimensions of the linked SketchUp model. It is best to put everything related to the model straight into the model itself.
