In an edit session, I need to create a series of rectangles that are 950' x 225'.  In a brand new shapefile, I have launched an edit session, selected Rectangle under Construction Tools, and right-clicked the mouse in order to access the direction, length, and width parameters.  Problem is, the parameters are grayed out.  Does anyone have an idea why that might be?
