Create polygons of specific size using geodesic measurements

Hi all, 

I am trying to create polygons of a specific size from a known point using a geodesic measurement mode. For example, I have a known point and want to create a polygon that is 100m x 30m starting at that point. I figured out how to do it by right clicking while I am creating the feature and setting the distance. However, I just realized it was doing that with a planar measurement mode. Unfortunately, I am far enough from the equator that I have a big error with that. I there a way to set the mode for the distance function in Create Features to be geodesic?

There are limited feature types that you can create. 

Fodder for the "Ideas" community, if there is enough cases where this might be a widespread practice.

Thank you! That gets me closer. I was hoping to draw rectangles instead of ellipses and circles.
