      Description

      Adrian spoke about being able to draw vertical/horizontal lines while creating
      a geometry. I think the topic goes beyond to the point that, while editing
      geometries, it is necessary to combine different techniques, thus the
      selection of a feature creation/modification tool should set a "mode", in
      order that other context sensitive "modifiers" can be used.
      Examples:

      • being editing a line and set an "ortho" mode which only allows horizontal
        and vertical lines, or even enabling the drawing of line segments orthogonal
        to another one from another feature.
      • being editing a line and set the edition mode temporarily parallell to
        another, existing one.
      • while adding vertices to a line, draw an arc and then continue
        adding straight segments.

      of course there are much more possible examples. AutoCAD is the most feature
      rich app I know on this regard.

        Cool. Another sub-modes could provide the ability to create new vertices by way of virtual intra-verticies, like employed in this openlayers example:
