Constraining line angles to 90 degrees

Postby PeterKM » Fri Dec 28, 2018 7:57 am

Is it possible to constrain Bezier :tool_pen: straight line nodes to 90 degrees only. I know I can restrict the node angle to 15 degree with the shift/control keys, but would find it useful to constrain the angle to 90 degrees as it is much quicker to just click the pointer vaguely in the area you want it to be.

yes in the control bar just pick the right angles only option that is the 4th mode

Thanks for the reply. I am obviously stupid as I can't see anything resembling a right angles only option in the control bar. Can you point me in the right direction. Should it appear as soon as I select the Bezier tool, or as soon as I click the mouse. I am using v 0.92 downloaded last week

Obviously I can't count because it is the FIFTH mode! Haha. Here is a pic:
