Angled guide lines

Hi.   I see that guide lines can be pulled from the rulers.  These lines are perpendicular.  Does anyone know if you can change the angle of these guide lines?

Also, what is the guide point used for? (pulled from the area between the rulers).

Nevermind.  I found the answer.  You simply open the View Size and Position window and type the angle.

You can turn off the guide point (menu Format - > Behavior -> Show Shape Handles)

What very few people know, is that you can incline the whole page by pressing the ctrl-key and grabbing the corner of the page. That's very handy when you draw isometrics. Pulling a guide from the ruler, makes it orthogonal to the current (rotated) view.


The guide POINT can be used to align to both the x and the y coordinate - not the whole length of a guide line. eg snap/glue a shape/edge to a point, without printing the latter.
To be honest, I don't use it neither  :D
