Angled lines request

Recommended Posts

It could be very useful to have a facility for drawing straight lines which are at a specified angle to another such straight line. Maybe that is asking a lot, but I can't see why it shouldn't be possible. Ideally I'd like to see arbitrary angles, such as 27.25 degrees, but I believe at the present there are only accurate horizontal and vertical line possibilities. The lines could be part of a drawing or diagram or photo, or simply grid lines for positioning other objects, to be removed later.

When using the Pen Tool in Straight Line Mode, you can constrain the angle to any multiple of 45 degrees by holding down the Shift key as you drag. Achieving an arbitrary angle between an existing line and a new one is quite easily achieved by duplicating the existing line and then increasing or decreasing the rotation of the duplicate via the R control in the Transform panel.
