drawing lines at an angle in a drawing
I have a need to draw a line representing an angled ceiling in a 2D drawing. For example I may have a model of a chandelier specifically designed for a ceiling with a 12 degree slope, and I just want to sketch a line in the drawing that lines up with the 12 degree mounting plate on the chandelier. I can't simply add an angle to the line relative to a horizontal, and I can't define the line as parallel to the angled feature in question. As it is purely for aesthetic purposes, I just click and drag the line until it is "close enough", but I feel like there must be an easy way to just set a line to an angle in a drawing. Any thoughts?
