Summary: Set Bond Lengths, Angles, etc. to specific values

Initial Comment:
Sometimes you want to set the bond length, angle, whatever to a specific fixed value. While the bond-manipulation tool makes it possible to run this with the mouse, it’s sometimes difficult to get exactly the number you want – better to use the keyboard.

We should have an extension which brings up a dialog to set specific properties like bond length, angle, dihedral, XYZ, etc. – click on an atom or a few atoms.

This should be targeted at a future release (0.3 or whatever).
