Description

I'd like to have the possibility to draw a perfect horizontal trend line.
To do it we would select the trend line tool, hit the Ctrl key and a perfect horizontal tend line would be draw. Not hitting the Ctrl key then the tool would act as it does at the moment. As simple as that.
OK, I know that we can edit the trend line properties and match the start and end values but imagine that you spend all day drawing trend lines to keep track of swings or whatever. It would be insane pull the properties for each line.
OK, you could edit the properties for one line and then clone it. I actually do that, the problem is when we use different sizes.
Use the Ctrl key while using the trend line tool is the best solution to achieve this.

Steps to reproduce this issue

The image shows how sometimes is difficult to draw a perfect horizontal trend line as the tool is drawing at the moment. Sometimes we need to be there, moving the mouse by milimiters just to get that perfect horizontal line.

Thank you Arnie. And thank you MultiCharts for doing something about this.
I you are going to choose the CTRL solution suggested by Arnie, please add this option to the Equidistant Channel also. I use both tools in horizontal, so it would be great if both could have the new property added.
Thanks,
Laurentius.
