Version 19.2 Deluxe: Turning Off the Angular Construction (---) Feature

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone know if there is a way-  in version 19.2 Deluxe, build 54.2-  to turn off the particular Angular Construction feature that makes it's "axis-point" stick where it is until clicking "Cancel" or "Finish"?  (what's that "feature" called?)

When I want to set multiple Angular Constructions, with different "axis-centers", after clicking "Cancel" or "Finish", I have to go back and re-select/activate that tool.  That's becoming a real drag.

Or is there some other method I'm not aware of?

Thanks, Alvin

Hit the escape key on your keyboard after placing a construction line.  You should then be able to place the first point of a new line.

Real good.  Thanks Rip.

That's pretty easy to do and get used to.
