Is it possible to turn off the snap to horizontal or vertical when trying to draw lines at shallow angles like 1/8" per foot?

FYI, Another way to temporarily turn off the "Ortho" effect is to tap the TAB key. This works great if you only need to turn it off for just one quick shallow angle, but then want it back on again after that. I discovered this trick by accident a few weeks ago, & it has come in pretty handy since. Got to love the magical TAB button (is there anything it can't do?)

How do you set this reverse? I mean...without cliking anything to have free control and if you hold TAB key down it becomes Ortho? Any help?

Also make sure the 'constrain' box is un-ticked just below the ribbon.
