Line with a specific length

Hello all,

I'm a new ArcGIS user and struggling here, I've been a CAD user for almost 5 years now.
I know that ArcGIS can draw a line by a length, but something has to be wrong.

I start the line click Ctrl+L and nothing happends. I right click and I get no options.

I've attached a photo of the menu I get when right clicking with the line tool activated.

Can somebody please shed some light on my problem?
