Straight Edge with Split Polygon Tool

Hello,

I was wondering if there is a key I could press down to get a perfectly straight edge when I'm using the Split Polygon tool. Thanks!

Oh I just found the Split Edge Ring Tool. Nevermind.

Use the cut faces tool instead. If you select the faces that you only wish to divide before using the tool it will work on those only. If you place your cursor of your poly object in a preferable orthographic viewport and hold down I believe the shift or cntrl key it will align the cut to horizontal/vertical and 45degree angles as the cut.

It's native in polygon menu to I believe Maya 6.0-7.0 but can be found in the Bonus tools from Alias prior to those versions.
