The UI of InkScape is new to me and not so easy to understand (my opinion)

At the top of the screen is a menu that has the word "Help" at the end.
Click that, then go down to the 4th item called "Tutorials"
Then read them and follow the directions.

One very nice feature of the is that you can choose one of these options (circled in red below)in the control bar.For me it was the ability to draw a dead horizontal line that I was looking for, but I found the answer on a different forum post:
"If you hold Ctrl you can restrict the angles of the lines (I think you can change it in Preferences but the default is 15 degrees), this way it's very easy to draw vertical and horizontal lines. "
Though it would have been handy to have this function on the tooltip, I understand there's lots on there already.
