  • I solved my problem with guide lines and snap to cusp nodes/snap to guides. But I had hoped, there was a simpler way to make lines vertical or horizontal.

You could also select the top left and bottom left node, then align them using the Align and distribute dialogue. Then do the same with bottom left and bottom right nodes.
