Hi @Swanky.  It's very difficult to draw a straight line with the paint brush.  Hold down the shift key and use the line/curve :LineTool: tool to draw a straight line.



EDIT:  I should have explained that holding down the shift will let you draw a straighlt line from top to bottom, or side-to-side .... and it will stay straight.  If you want to make the line curve, you can 'pull' on the little circles to move the line in a shape.

Shift key snaps the angle of a line to 15 degree increments - not just horizontal and vertical (it is very useful for those too!).

The angular measurements degrees, minutes and seconds always seemed odd to me.
I read last night that 1 hour = 15 degrees, which kind of makes sense on a 24 hour clock face.(360/24 = 15).


Of course I will still set my alarm clock in radians.:P
