Assistants can be forced to horizontal/vertical but not to +/- 15 degrees

I’ve recently noticed that the Shift key can be used as a modifier to force Assistant Tool lines to be horizontal or vertical (and force ellipses to be circles).

With the Line Tool, this use of the Shift key forces a line to be at +/- 15 degree increments around horizontal/vertical.

I’m wondering why the Assistant Tool lines don’t have the same facility because it would be useful.


Yeah often times I find myself wanting this when working with assistants
