(b) be able to stand the square up on one edge and have it stay put, the way an engineer s square does.

I m going to give the stair gauges a try as they might achieve both of those things.

I have the set from Lee Valley. By reversing them on one edge of my square (one knob right, one left) I was able to stand the square on the edge. Not super stable though. A carefully cut kerf in a piece of hardwood might be better. If your square is steel (mine’s not), you could rig something up with blocks of wood and rare earth magnets.
