I still do not manage. Rotating the grid I can place a wall along the grid, however I need to use the guideline first to place the wall in the exact position. Rotating the grid, the guidelines are still horizontal and vertical. They do not follow the grid. What am I missing?
The orange, persistent guidelines can even be round!
And of course in any angle you desire.
Do the following steps:
Drag the guideline onto the element, e.g. a wall. The guide will then snap into the correct angle. Then hover over the guideline and an orange orb will appear. This is its handle and you can then drag the guidline away from the element to the desired location.

As usual there are different ways to handle your workflow. The guidelines do work, in parallel and perpendicular, but they take a short time before they appear. I use a one key shortcut for some constraints, mainly the parallel and the perpendicular one. This way I don't have to hover over an element and wait for the guideline to appear before I start drawing. Search for "constraint" in the keyboard shortcuts menu and set up the shortcuts you need. You'll probably have to override some default settings so be careful and choose some shortcuts you won't need or don't use. It does save some time.
