Expanding the ortho mode by 30, 15, 10 or 5 degree increments

I like the new ortho mode. I think it could be even more powerful if lines drawn at 5, 10, 15 or 30 degree incrementrs were also perfectly aligned to those angles. 


The increments could be made selectable in Settings.


My suggestion is not an earth shattering improvement - I am beginning to wonder if the complexity it would add to the app would be worth it : )

Mark, 


Great suggestion. This might be something we could look into when we add dimensions. I think there is room for improvement of rotating curves (I'd personally be able to rotate something and move the origin of an object to rotate around) and so I think that could be one way of doing it. 


Another idea would be to be able to place a control point of a curve, and have a 'protractor' mode on and then you could place the second point and you could see the degrees from horizontal or vertical and move the second point until you get to the desired degrees.


There is definitely room here for more things we could do! Thanks for the suggestion!
