Is it possible to measure angles in inkscape.
Not yet, at least not directly. There's a workaround however: switch
to Pen tool and click three times in the three points whose angle you
want to measure. After the click in the first point and hovering the
mouse over the second, you see the angle of the first segment towards
horizontal (in the statusbar). After the click in the second point and
hovering the mouse over the third, you see the angle of the second
segment towards horizontal. Then you need to add up these angles to
get the angle between the segments. Clumsy, but at least possible in
principle. We really need a Measure tool, and it should be easy to do
(based on Pen, much simplified) - a good first project for a new
Inkscape. Draw Freely.
