When creating wiring diagrams for UI’s for example, or creating UML sequence diagrams you need to draw a lot of horizontal and vertical lines.  It would be really helpful if there could be some visual indication when drawing or extending lines that the are horizontal or vertical - a bit like the indications when you have something aligned with something else.

Hi @David Coales.

Try holding Shift when creating a connection line, it will indicate a straight horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line. Does it help?

 

@Pavel.O, if you can’t find the needed template in the Template library, you can send us your idea, and we might add it to the library in the future.

@Marina Wow that is super useful thanks.  Is there anything similar on tablets though where I don’t have the option to hold shift down ?

Hey @David Coales,

No, not yet - for now this can only be achieved in the desktop version.
