Thanks for these explanations. I've been trying to use the new orthogonal line controls, but they're so fussy that I don't think they're worth the effort.

The control handle seems to have an absolute position, so it doesn't move with the line when I rearrange things. That leads to lots of rearranging, converting back to straight lines, or just deleting and redrawing all the lines. Frustrating, and is already giving me a deep dread of revisions.

The control handle also seems way too sensitive. I'm spending far too much time getting the proper angle, which used to be so easy. Then option+command+J to make sure the line isn't a pixel off.

The uses you mention in your post are good ones, but I need them way less often than I need a simple, clean, right angle that moves predictably.

Am I missing something? If so, I'm all ears. I'd love to be able to use these new features as easily as the old ones.
