Depending on what you are going to draw; if anything either technical or building/cottage then you can try either ProgeCAD Smart 2009 or Draftsight, both have free versions that are fully functional 2D CAD programs for private use only.
Especially Draftsight is quite easy to learn.
Download from their own homepage.

Thanks all.  If I make a suggestion to LO - add some more CAD abilities
to Draw such as higher precision.  LOD is a very useful program, and
could be even more useful.

This is a always what happens to good software, be it FOSS, commercial, shareware, whatever. Developers keep adding features until it becomes bloated, buggy, and slow.

Then users complain about it being bloated, buggy, and slow.

If you need that type of precision for your project, maybe LO isn't the correct software.

My suggestion would be to try page layout software and a basic CAD/drawing program. Do your drawing (I'm assuming you need to do more than just a line) then input the drawing into the page layout software where you'll have so much better options for layout than you ever will in LO.

FWIW, I've yet to see any word processing that has more than 2 decimal places for spacing.

Also, if you want truly good looking text, use page layout software and a quality font. I've yet to see a word processor that does kerning. Word processors do character spacing, which is not the same. Document processors do kerning, AFAIK.
