I’m using Intaglio for creating schematic maps of railway networks, which means working with lots of graphics and lots of horizontal/vertical/45 degree diagonal lines. The problem I am having is that when I extend/shrink diagonals (using shift), or even copy and paste, they quite often go off true, e.g. they change to 44.5 degrees. These can be fixed, redrawn or by changing x/y dimensions in the geometry window, but I am finding myself correcting a lot of diagonals in this way. Is this a problem that other people are having.
When working with grid snap on, horizontal and vertical lines work fine, but I need also to link 45 degree diagonals to, say, horizontal lines via arcs. The grid snap takes care of the horizontal-arc connection, but the diagonal-arc connection is harder. Is there a reliable way to do this?
