Suggesting a hot key for drawing orthographic lines with BRUSH Tool!

I'm Suggesting a hot key for drawing orthographic lines! or a click and hold feature like procreate? Or some simple perspective grid tools like your competitors.

I just want to know if there is a hot key that allows you to use a BRUSH tool WHILE drawing the line as an orthogonal diagonal line? Versus the click-click method-and shotgunning the end point. 


I teach 240+ college students a year and getting them to use photoshop versus the competition is getting harder and harder without these perspective guides and straight line hot keys. We can all do horizontal and vertical while drawing just find holding a hot key, but not orthographic lines, not without shotgunning a click and click feature or rotating the screen..

AND Not with the line tool. I know that already exists but that causes a change of tools and workflow..I just want to know if this feature exists or will exist….you’re losing valuable students to other platforms & it's hard to stop them. With all your new fancy Ai and knowing Fresco has perspective tools---WHY not Photoshop? (Windows even has a plug in, but none for Mac)
