lines question

Recommended Posts

hello guys, for those of you familiar with autocad, you know F8 is a button that is your best friend to turn ortho on and off. does chief have this command somewhere. for instance, when i draw a line, wall or even move text it wants to move in straight increments. can't we freely move things without being constrained? i am aware if i want a 45 deg wall i can draw anything and click it's properties and give it the angle. just seems kind of an extra step. another example and my biggest pet peeve, when i do my leader lines with text i want it to move freely as well and not in cheif's angle default coordinates. i have worked around this for about a year before asking lol.

Holding Cntrl (PC) or CMD (MAC) will allow you to move "freely" wherever you need it.  Also you can toggle on and off ortho mode with the angle snap button.  Can always set a hotkey for that control.
