using NT, a horizontal line can be created pressing F6 and then clicking the mouse at the desired location. A vertical line is done with F7.

I went through a bunch of key combinations thinking they would have put the ability to go in 15 degree increments but no such luck, sorry.

I don't think anyone has coded that yet.
However you can create a ray and then right click on the line and choose PROPERTIES
A window will popup and you can click on the DATA tab at the top.
Make the Start Y and End Y the same number and it will be horizontal.

I know it is a pain but works.

FWIW

Talk about killing a fly with a sledgehammer,

F6, click at a spot, F3, click a the spot and line up with F6 line, click on F6 line, hit delete.

Had to custom code indicator for horizontal line


I had to custom code an indicator to make a line horizontal.

The magic is to attach to the PreviewKeyDownEventHandler from the ChartControl. I then assigned the comma (',') key to do the following when I have a ChartLine selected:

 
Code
            var cl = o as NinjaTrader.Gui.Chart.ILine;
	     if(cl == null)
                return;	            

            //...

            //
            // Make line Horizontal
            //
            else if( e.KeyCode == Keys.Oemcomma)
            {
	            cl.EndY = cl.StartY;
            }
I also assigned the Ctrl-Shift-Comma to convert a ChartLine to a ChartRay and vice versa.

I have other keys and key combinations assigned to do other common functions I need.

I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable releasing the indicator because I'm using C# Reflection to get at some methods NT has not exposed. The methods are VERY, VERY volatile, meaning NT could, and will, change them without notice breaking the indicator.
