Shift Key= Orthagonally Constrained (Solved)

Post by seasdes » Sat Jun 05, 2021 8:42 am

I would like to have a feature where if you pressed the Shift key during an operation the cursor would act orthoganally.

This is a feature common to a lot of graphics/ CAD packages. Would certainly speed up operations.

I know that there are features similar to this in toolbars. What I am requesting would not replace these commands.

In QCAD you can use the Alt or Option key for this.
Shift is used to move the start or endpoint of a line without changing its angle (extending / shortening).
