I only just stumbled on this myself recently.
If you are using MT4 then it is one of the line objects: from the main menu select Insert > Lines > Trendline by Angle.
You can also customise your toolbars and add it so it is one of your icons and thus just a single click away:
1. Right click on the "Line Studies" toolbar (the one with the cursor and cross-hair icons)
2. select "Customise"
3. Drag the "Trendline by Angle" icon to the toolbar.
Up until a couple of days ago I literally used to hold a protractor to the screen!
Also in case you weren't aware, 2 other time-saving gems:
1. Once you have your angle, if you hold the "Shift" key when resizing the trendline then the angle remains "locked" in place. This works for other objects as well, though you need to play around with them a bit as different objects do slightly different things. I use it a lot for the fib object as well so I don't have to keep resetting my pips "space" when I sometimes resize it.
2. To duplicate an object, click on the object in question so the little square "highlighted" corners appear. Then whilst holding down the "Ctrl" key, click and drag the selected object to another part of the screen. How good is that?
I cannot tell you how much time I have saved since learning those two tips. I think it was MO in another thread that brouight them to my attention. Is there nothing this man cannot teach us?
I knew about 1 and 2 but never dug deep enough to investigate what all was available. Years ago I moved the equidistant channel to the toolbar but that trading method didnt last long. Hahahah.
