Measure Tool Does Not Show Angular Distances (Answer: Fixed In Next Update)

I Recently found the measure tool is only showing known physical distances. Angular distances have disappeared on both my iOS devices. Is there a setting I’ve missed for this tool?

    I also have this error on my iPhone with iOS 13.3.  My iPad shows both physical and angular distance.  My iPhone shows only physical distance and not angular distance.

    I updated my iPad this morning and the angular distance is now gone on that too.  So it fails on both the iPhone and iPad.

    I just noticed this problem too.

    Below is a screen shot of the problem. Angular distance is Needed for most astronomical observation planning. Physical distance is interesting bit by itself, useless for my purposes.

    I am seeing this problem on my iPad (iOS 12.4.4) and iPhone (iOS 13.3).  So it is not specific to iOS 13.  Both have SkySafari 6 Pro version 6.6.1.3.

    Hey all. This has been fixed and will be available in the next few days with the SkySafari 6.6.3 update.

    Thanks for all your reports!
