A solution I previously used was to have a "Make Vertical" button and a
"Make Horizontal" button which would "flatten" the line in the
appropriate direction in order to compensate for this problem.
Another solution is to use "Reshape Graphic" (Object menu, at least
under 2.5), which places round handles on the endpoints of the line,
allowing you to drag the endpoints as with a traditional drawing tool.
