This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop 2020: Measure Tool, option drag to get protractor, not working

Using the ruler tool in Photoshop v21.0.1 does not allow the measurement of angles.

Select the ruler tool and drag out a line.
Hold the Alt key and drag out a second line from the first
This should display both lines and the angle between them should be readable in the options bar:

CC2018 works correctly

CC2019 the first line vanishes but the points remain and the angle is displayed

CC2020 (v21.0.1) both lines disappear when attempting to drag out the second line

System : Windows 10 v1903 build 18362.476   GPU NVidia GTX1080 driver v 436.15

I'm seeing this issue also. I'm also in Win 10.

I never see a second line in 2020 but the angle in the tool options bar seems to be working however, there are no visible reference points or limes
