how to measure angles alpha and ext?


LibreOffice Draw has dimension lines, where one can put measurements on edges of a graphic.

But it does not have "dimension angles", where the angles between two edges are measured.

Some pictures attached shows exaclty what is missing. Of course one, can emulate it with an arc of a cricle but it quickly become cumbersome and breaks quite easily.

Dimension angle simulated with Draw

You can add a straight line and set the rotation. But to visualize the angle it needs another line, a perfectly attached curve, and text. The "dimension angle" comprising of all the parts would be a nice enhancement.
