Straight running stitch without zigzag?

Yikes. I Just said everything above. How do you make a straight running stitch without it zigzaging all over the place. Is there a trick to keeping the stitch straight

You might try the Japanese technique for running stitches. Running stitches are important in traditional kimono making, because kimonos are completely disassembled for laundering. Here are links to two videos. One shows the details of the stitch, while the other shows the correct movement of the left hand. <https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8xbrUg6rZk><https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiDT-zz-6u4>
