The original ACCEL-EDA and P-CAD (and good old DOS Orcad) had a wire routing orthoganality feature / command where, in the process of routing the wire, you could press the 'O' key and toggle between right-angle over-then-down or down-then-over or 45-degree or unconstrained-angle (point to point) routing on the fly. It made routing wires very fast and efficient.

I’d like to see this too, I do a lot of design with inductors and transformers, and sometimes you need to show a crossover this way to make it clear what’s actually going on. It would also be nice to be able to rotate components similarly, eg to clearly show topologies like diode bridge -v- diode ring
