to set the degree angle for a line to 100th of a degree (English

are going to use 4.0.2, you will have to use these degree Intergers: 0

accuracy is less that 0.5 degrees.
I'd call that a regression over being able to specify to 1/100th of a

Dan, any idea how/why that happened ? Was there something wrong with the
previous way ? Just trying to understand the rationale behind the change.

No, I'm clueless. My only guess was this: with 360 degrees in a circle, the thinking was that this is accurate enough for the size of Draw figures. But if someone wants to draw a line a given angle with a high degree of accuracy, it can still be done if he wants to use some trigonometry. Use the Position and Size dialog. Instead of changing the angle for the line, calculate what the positions of the two end points from the line need to be to achieve the angle desired.
