Perpendicular From Curve & FromFirstPoint

When I use “Line: Perpendicular From Curve” comand, the line is at a 45deg angle from the plane only when using “FromFirstPoint”. This changed from V4 to V5 and is still true in V6. Is this an expected result if I’m drawing in the Top view?

Hello, no, I would say that is not the expected result in Top - is the line end point pick just in space or is there some snap?


The end of line pick point is in space.

(After looking closer, it is a SmartTrack snap @ <225deg On Ortho>. )
