??Angle finder??

??Angle finder??

??Angle finder??

I am wondering if in Illustrator I can select three points and get the degree of angle that those three points make.  

Here is an example of what I want to do. Lets say I selected the three points below (the middle one being the one one the bottom left)...


Obviously it is a 90 degree angle but I want to be told that.

Any other Adobe products that has this feature?  Or does anyone know of any freeware with this function?

Thanks for your help!

RE: ??Angle finder??

...for real precision drawing in illustrator you really need cadtools:


...not free unfortunately as it is a power tool developed by third party...

...the manual method for checking angles in illustrator is to use the measure tool, this however is approximate and doesn't snap to anything so you can get different readings (in the info palette) each time, this is where nineblock.com come in with snapmeasure:


...they also do other useful extensions to the illustrator functions:
