I think it would be much straightforward (less thinking) -- "I want to 
make the line from here to there horizontal/vertical; end".

In comparison -- you have to make the same steps, but additionally you 
have to select another tool and type in the values you see on the 

One rotation per day, ok, but ~100 rotations a day, it is significant 
boost, because it means ~500 keystrokes less (and less focus, you 
have to pay attention each time you type the values). So, I think you 
would be less tired with the tool as I proposed after working with 
the images.
