How can I set my cursor angle without having to always go to Drafting
Settings to change it. What would be great is if I could have two angles set
up and just hit the enter button on my mouse.

SNAPANG is the command: HELP explains usage.

Make a toolbar button macro, or two, to whatever angles you want, then just
click on one when needed. Here is a sample, change the 0 to whatever angle
you want.

^C^C_snapang;0

Have you explored getting into the POLAR tracking? Right click on the word
POLAR at the bottom of your LT screen (next to Osnap and Ortho), select
settings, explore it with the HELP button on that pop-up. Might be what you
really need to sue instead.

Michael,

explore the use of user defined coordinate systems (UCS command). They
are useful in 2D as well.
