@catlover only yesterday I was thinking how this would be a useful workaround until AD has this functionality built in.

 

I made my own protractor, but yours are significantly nicer! Thanks for sharing.

 

How about adding a screenshot to your post to tempt people?

Thanks, Aammppaa.

In the mean time I uploaded an updated version of Type-1.

I have not yet been successful in adding a screenshot.

Just exactly how does one do that ?

@catlover Something seems to have gone awry with your original post... the two files fail to download, with this error message…

Sorry, there is a problem

We could not locate the item you are trying to view.

 

 

As for screenshots - just Export images from Affinity Designer and then attach them to your post.

Here are the exports from your files that I downloaded a couple of days ago (ie not updated as you refer to above).
