Description

Qcharts has a feature where you can grab a trend line at one of the two anchor points then press the shift key and it will snap in 45 degree steps (in full circle). Horizontal left/right Vertical up/down and all the 45 degree positions in between. It is very handy for trend line users.

Since this is similar to the already existing "Drawing a perfectly straight line with Ctrl" feature, please implement it with Ctrl/"shift" active all the time when pressing it working with trend lines. Meaning after the lines are initially set also. I have made a pm request regarding an improvement of the already existing feature here: http://www.multicharts.com/pm/viewissue.php?issue_no=MC-1180 .
You have my vote John.
Best regards,
Laurentius

I forgot to make it clear that the Qchart feature applies regardless of which of the two anchor points the user grabs. Also to make it more clearn, what happens is the anchor point that is not grabbed stays in its original location. It makes a lot of sense when you think about it.
