    Great ernie. You found one I didn't! It actually remembers what angle it was made at as when you rotate it with the Ctrl key down it no longer aligns up-down or left-right. We'll call this the Yellow solution.

    I included a cheat: make it in an earlier version and copy back. This was my Green solution.

    Two to go.

    ernie, you are cooking. That was my Blue solution.

    My worst offering (Red) is to create a Line with Round cap. Convert Line to Shape and delete outer control points and add back a Line width.

    If you do this with a Butt or Square cap you get into the same position as your Box solution.
    It equally works with a Circle but you have to remove the Smooth join.
