points defined by coordinates in sketch (design modeler)

I 'm trying to use ansys design modeler (13.0), and as I've never used it, it seems very strange and different from Gambit...

For example how can I make a sketch (since it appears necessary to begin geometry by making a sketch !) just by defining 3 points with known coordinates ?

I've tried making a plan (in tab modeling), then tried to force point of a line sketch (in sketch tab) to join them, but that seems impossible !

... this software seems just loving the "hazardous clic button method", what a pity !

thank you for your help

I think it will help you a lot.

thank you very much,

... it's seems really different from Gambit : you must create the body and then change the dimensions !
