not sure what specifically is throwing you off, but hang in there - after a while making lines will cease to appear to be random
draft has the notion of workplane (Draft_ToggleGrid
), if that one is off - it typically feels like fc is throwing you curved balls.
using shift once you have one point of a line will lock it in vertical or horizontal (it locks in the direction that is closes when you press it, if not the intended one just release the shift key and move the mouse closer to where you want it to be and press/hold shift again)
this works great with snap and makes it easy to align things and control lengths of lines.
if you are using angles, I think you have to check the checkbox for angle, and also press enter after having entered an angle.
(this one could actually be it...)
when you have a general direction of a line in the 3d view if you hit h-key it will lock that direction, and it is only length that is adjustable in the 3d view after that (angle you can alter in the input field).
you know when you "snap", since then it is a white dot in the 3d-view, if the white dot is not there - there is no snap.
hope it helps.

Copy you're existing...
cool, now I just need to figure out how to get this working with an appimage installation - so far I have not been able to do it.
maybe it is not possible?
