Hello Experts -

I am looking for a Non-Adobe piece of software that will allow me to display text / arrow at an angle.

The goal is to take an existing sketch of some land that is in a PDF format, and add an idiot-level measurement like this, but - say - at a 20% angle:

<-------------------- 25.6 Feet ----------------------->

I already have utilities that will allow me to overdraw arrows at an angle, but they won't allow me add text at the same time.

I realize that Adobe Acrobat can do this, but I'd rather not spend $500 or $19.95 a month for an "occasionally used" functionality. Can you recommend anything?  I'm willing to pay for a reasonably priced add-on.

Thanks for your suggestions.
