    That sounds like Object Snap Tracking.... make sure OTRACK is enabled on the the status bar

    Ive done that. Otrack only works after initializing line start point. I like seeing it after hitting line but before initializing start point. For instance, say I draw a straight horizontal line. Then I hit line command, go to end of line i already drew and scroll over endpoint. I use to then go straight above and the dotted line would follow my cursor. Then I could hit starting point of my next line knowing it was directly above endpoint of my first line. This possible in 2004/05

    Technically, I believe it's AutoTrack that you are having trouble with, after you pick the line's start point/basepoint, then it's Polar Tracking. (The two are not exclusive, they can be used simultaneously)

    Here's a demo with 2005, and I don't think there should be any significant differences.
