Drawing a perfectly straight line - Making Ctrl active also after line is inititally set

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

First thank you very much for implementing the Ctrl "straight line" feature, but I am missing that Ctrl is making the line(s) snapping to horizontal or vertical position after the line(s) are initially set also. For example if one needs to adjust the position or extend a line (with Extend turned off in "Format") it happens that the line is getting sloped / not straight anymore. Then one are kind of back to square one since Ctrl is only working when initially drawing the line.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Press Ctrl when drawing a horizontal trend line. After set make it sloped. Then grab one of the anchor points and press Ctrl. It will not continue making the line snapping to horizontal or vertical as when initially drawing the line.

I agree. Ability to align a line verticaly or horizontally should be available at any time, not only when creating the line. Also, this ability should work harmoniously with snapping, as it is common usage to snap one side of a line and to extend horizontally the other side. All this should work with both side a the line, as sometimes it is the end of the line to be aligned, sometimes it is the beginning.
