Measure Tool - Perpendicular Angle?

BenTaylorBenTaylor Member Posts: 16 PRO
I was measuring the distance between two axes, and usually the "Perp Axes Dist" is shown (which I like). Today I noticed that the measured value shown was "Perp Axes Angle", and it was shown as 90°. Something similar occurs when I select two perpendicular lines - it shows "Perp Lines Angle: 90.000°". 

When things aren't perpendicular, it just reads "Angle: X°", which is helpful. Showing that perpendicular lines are 90° from each other isn't particularly helpful. Is there a scenario in which the angle between two perpendicular axes is not 90°? Or is this just redundant?
