i need to make a line that's not quite horizontal, but when it try to use the ruler to make it, it always snaps to horizontal. This should be a feature that can be disabled, is it possible?
Unfortunately, the snapping behavior is not something that can be turned off in the current release. We have heard this feature request once or twice before, but I can't say when having an option to turn off snapping will make it into a future release.
Fortunately, we're in the future! And there's now a new release with diagonal rules. (we should probably thank Frank... and people who requested it!)
For the archives: Yes! Diagonal straight edges. (complete with an degree of angle notification)
