Protractor Annotation Object

The protractor annotation object (ANNOBJECT_PROTRACTOR) consists of two simple lines joined at a vertex to create an angle. With the automated functions, the first line of the protractor is started on a mouse-down event and completed on a second mouse-down event. The second line is completed on a third mouse-down event.

The class for Protractor Annotation objects is LAnnProtractor.
