FS#881 - Line orthogonal to line and tangential to arc, circle or ellipse

It would be useful to have an additional line tool that could be drawn tangent to an existing circle and perpendicular to a line.
see screenshot for the idea:

Great new tool, very useful.

In testing I noticed that if I select the wrong entity - say a circle, arc etc. the feedback in the error message is wrong, to my thinking it should read 'Entity is not a Line'!

See attached screenshot.
