    Select the line.

    Make it a group.

    Set the width or height to what you want in the Object properties panel.

    Ungroup it.

    (only works with straight horizontal or vertical lines)

    Twenty years of drawing software development and we can't call for a line of
    a given length at a given angle.
    In the words of Jack Aubrey on the poop deck of his creaky, leaky, wooden
    square-rigged sailboat, "What a marvelous technological age we live in!"

    Open your Info toolbar. As you draw the a line with the line tool, the
    length will read out in the toolbar.

    Now, if you're on a Mac, get yourself Michael Slomski's most excellent Angle
    Xtra. It will give you the length of a two-point line or the length between
    two subselected points on a line segment. Highly recommended!

    Here's the link for the Angle Xtra:

    Another nice feature of this is than you can enter an angle for a line and
    the line rotates to that angle.

    I know, I know, these features should have been built into FH ages ago.
