The behaviour has changed a bit, but this feature is not completely broken. To get one-off constrained lines in freehand mode:

  1. Hold down <shift>
  2. Click and hold <button1>
  3. With <button1> still held, move the pointer → straight line preview appears while the button is held
  4. With <button1> still held, press <ctrl> too → angles begin snapping
  5. Release <button1> → straight line with constrained angle is added undoably to the canvas
  6. Straight line mode exits, and freehand mode is entered.

To make straight lines at arbitrary angles while in freehand mode:

  1. Hold down <shift>
  2. Click and hold <button1>
  3. With <button1> still held, move the pointer → straight line preview appears while the button is held
  4. Release <button1> → straight line with arbitrary angle is added undoably to the canvas
  5. Straight line mode exits, and freehand mode is entered.

Snapping to the nearest 15° angle when releasing shift to exit the line-drawing mode is broken though, and it should be fixed.

Thanks for the helpful bug report!

Hi, I saw in last Git a regression of a previous lines feature.
It's about creating constrained lines with shift+click and drag.

How to make it before :
=======================
1. Hold <shift> down, then start to trace a line ( drag ).
2. Release <shift> but still keep dragging ; line will enter in constrain mode preview( adopting only position of 0°, 90° lines, or each 15° step , similar to <shift>+<control> )
3. Release click to validate the line.

How to it is now :
==================
1. Hold <shift> down, then start to trace a line ( drag ).
2. Release <shift> ; line will be traced to the nearest constrained neighbours of 15° constrain.

It brokes :
===========
- ability to make a free angled lines ; as they all round to 15°
- ease to make constrained lines with only <shift>
