CAD drawing ORTHO Mode 2 Hot key: F8

CAD drafting ORTHO Mode 3 Command line: ORTO

With orthogonalisation mode set on, vector lines and rubber lines for editing can only be drawn in directions parallel to the coordinate axis.

If an angle of a coordinate system is changed, the corresponding ortho mode angle is also changed.

The ORTHO mode has higher priority than the polar tracking mode.

note: You can temporarily switch off the ORTHO mode by pressing and holding the SHIFT button when the command of creation or object editing is running.
