About Temporary Override Keys

Temporary override keys are used to temporarily turn on or off drafting settings.

For example, holding down the Shift key toggles the current setting of Ortho mode.
If Ortho mode is off before the Shift key is held down, Ortho mode will be turned
on and turned back off when the key is released.
