    Hi Mathew,

    I would like to request that when drawing a declining angle that instead of showing this as a degree within 360 degrees that this is shown as a – degree up to a maximum of 90 degrees only.   For example if I want to draw a declining angle at a user specified degree this is counter-intuitive when Optuma converts this to a degree within 360 e.g 315 instead of just -45.

    Can you please consider modifying this function so it is simpler for the user to simply input what declining angle  you want to draw so it calculates from 0 to 90 instead of o to 360.

    Kind regards
    Brian

    Hi Brian,

    I was just working in this area for the next update – was that the Trend Line tool? What is the exact name of the tool?

    All the best

    Hi Mathew,

    I am referring to using the regular trend line tool.  Currently if I draw from a rising trendline you can just right click on the pencil icon and it shows what the actual degree is, however it becomes complicated when you draw a declining trendline as it shows the degree as 360 degrees of a circle which gets confusing when you just want to calculate what the actual degree it is on a scale of 0 to 90.

    One of the other software providers I know just shows this as a negative angle from 0 to 90 and its much easier for you to then work with rather than trying to correctly calculate each time what a declining trend line represents in terms of an angle from 0 to 90.

    I would appreciate it if this improvement can be added to the next release.

    Kind regards
    Brian

    Perfect Timing Brian, It was easy for me to sneak that in.

    You may also like the changes coming to the Triangle tool.
