infinite vertical lines not so vertical

Discussion created by Ian Vivero on Nov 21, 2007
Ever since upgrading to 2008 (sp0.1) I have noticed some weird behavior when creating lines of infinite length. When the line is created and set coincident to the origin then set horizontal or vertical it is still possible to grab the line and spin it around the origin thus creating an unsolvable condition (see attached) is this a bug or is there some setting somewhere that governs the behavior of infinite lines? This does not occur when using lines of finite length even if the line does not have defined endpoint locations. Selecting fixed does solve this issue however I don't remember having to do this in 2007.
