Add an Orthogonal mode to the JS API and AGOL measure widget.   And add snapping; with programmer and/or user-specified layers to snap to.  Make both these features accessible by key combo and/or also by graphical user interface (might be more discoverable; but may be nicer to tuck away via key combo for pro apps for power users)  I also suggest adding these both to the Editing widget.  Would like this in 3.x (because we use WAB 2D) but I would imagine it would probably only make it to the 4.x.

Ortho mode in measurement was actually one thing I liked in AutoCad that seems to just work easily and nicely.
