I try to draw a sloped line with AccuDraw. I tried this tutorial but it didn't work as expected: https://envisioncad.com/accudraw-with-popup-calculator
For example I input 1000, 1000, 1300 coordinates for the first point, second point will be 40 meters away with %5 slope. In distance, direction mode, I input dist: 40 m, direction: 40 degree, Z: pressed * and input 0.5. Elevation didn't change. I expect that it calculates 40- (40*0.5) How can it be calculated from the first elevation?
Edit: corrected (Z * slope) to (distance * slope)
Your Z would be 40(hit)*(type)-0.05
That is "40 feet at 5% down"5% on it's own doesn't mean anything - it can only be applied to a distance.

Thank you, When I try, it works for positive direction like 40(hit)*(type) 0.05. When I do 40(hit)*(type)-0.05 it doesn't. When I type -0.05, multiplication symbol is subtraction symbol so it subtracts the distance from 0.05. It may be about AccuDraw settings, I will check it and I will try again.
Positive slope is ok:
Negative slope changes multiplication to subtraction:
