You can use the Horizontal/Vertical icon-constraint-horizontal-vertical.png constraint to create a horizontal or vertical relationship between linear sketch elements. Horizontal and vertical directions in a sketch are aligned with the axes of the sketch plane. 

To create a Horizontal/Vertical constraint:

  1. Select a line or lines,
  2. From the constraints menu, select Horizontal/Vertical.
    Note: The line(s) are aligned with the axis closest to their original direction.
