Draw trendline based on each tick increment

I'd like to draw trendlines that could only be plotted based on each symbol tick increment.
Taking the ES as example, ES moves every 0.25 points. When drawing a trendline it makes no sense having it at 1788.35 since ES will only trades at 1788.25 or 1788.50.

So my request is to have a keyboard key when pressed while drawing the trendline, this would recognize each symbol tick increment and would only plot based on that increment.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Attached is an image showing the trendline box indicating at which price it is at the moment I'm moving it. It's indicating 1793.38. When moving it, it should only move to 1793.25 or 1793.50.

Here is a video I made showing that I'm always forced to go to the trendline properties to have it exactly at the price I want it.

I forgot to add another feature. When drawing a horizontal line, it woiuld be nice to see the actual line and the price at which it will be plotted before we plot it for better viewing. The way it is right now I'm always editing it so it's plotted at the precise price I want it.
