Summary: Clipper tool enhancement.
Would it be possible to add an angle function to two-point clipping? Since
models can be set at any angle you give them in the entity window, it would be
extremely useful to set the clipper tool at the same angle so the geometry you
cut can be lined up immediately to the entity's angle. Eyeballing this
operation can be a time sapper when you have strange angles like a 33.5 degree
plane. It would be nice to just place two clip points in a row on the grid and
then hit a hot key...say ctrl+z...which brings up the clipper window where you
can specify any given angle. Then the second point placed will snap to a grid
point that will achieve the desired cutting angle. This is probably not easily
done, or even possible but it is worth a try.
