Coincident showing as Horizontal. Is there s problem with "show constraints" or have I just lost it?

Something weird is happening to me when editing constraints.  It seem to me that the displayed symbol sometimes is wrong. Here I have a "horizontal" constraint that clearly behaves as a coincident constraint. I cannot see that I am doing something wrong... or?

    Maybe share the URL to your doc here?

    It sort of looks like you have a horizontal constraint between the point ant the horizontal line, which would keep the point in horizontal alignment to the horizontal line, which, yes, acts as a de facto coincident constraint.  Maybe you're looking to put the horizontal constraint on the angled line? Not sure what the intent is here.

    Note that the icon is blue, not white, indicating a constraint to something outside the sketch.
    Awesome I didn't know that. The origin was out of view and it never crossed my mind that I might have a relation all the way over there. I have used SolidWorks from version 98 and I am just starting to test Onshape so sometimes. It's great so far but sometimes I trip on the differences. The only big thing I miss is Assembly Configurations. On the flip side Onshape have done so many things right. The day I can forget about SW EPDM will be a blessing.

    /Thanks
