    Default Detect lines that are not absolute horizontal or vertical

    Summary: Quickly detect lines that are not perfectly horizontal or vertical

    Description: I woul like a utility or command for detect lines no absolutly horizontals or verticals.

    How Used: They are more drawings with lines incorrects (angle XY different of cero, 90, 180, 270 grads).

    Feature Affinity: Drawing Tools 2D

    This is true, but, the properties show up in different ways, so you might have to make a few selections for different object types, like lines would show up with start and end z elevations different, but, plines would show up as having an elevation, and some blocks, if created/imported wrong, have a basepoint at a '0' z elevation, but, might have entities that are above that... erm... I think...

    _.QSelect will very easily achieve this task in one single operation.
