    Sometimes you just forget the small useful things about MapInfo Pro...

    I came across the article below: "Creating and Editing Features with MapInfo" and when reading thru it a saw this:
    "Orthogonal Mode You can draw orthogonal (right angle) polygon line segments when you press the Ctrl key. This restricts new segments 45 degree increments relative to the last line segment. This is useful when you want to draw perpendicular lines."

    I had forgotten about an important part: "relative to the last line segment". That's quite nice for example when drawing buildings.
