Hi everyone,
am I missing something, or is gradient fill's angle parameter is broken?
I'm putting gradient overlay over the opaque layer and while I'm using angles like 0, 45, 90 .. everything is fine:


But any other angle doesn't correspond with ruler tool
This should show -30, but not -33


This should show -65, but not -60


And so on.
Can anyone please help me to understand what's going on exactly?
Thanks

Tried this in PS CC2015 and it seems that's CC2014 bug. In CC2015 angles are the same as in measurement tool.

Yes, there was another topic on this.
It was a bug, fixed in CC 2015.
