The measure tool gives the length of a line. Is there any way to get the bearing of that line without doing some mathematics?

Use Alt-Shift-Arrow key to rotate the view until the line is pointing straight up. Add a placemark and in the placemark edit window click on advanced and then the view tab to see the heading.
