I thought as much. Do you think this should have a number as the rest of the steps or not?

That's up to you. I have seen people annotating these steps, for example, the picture showing the top is 45a and the next picture showing the bottom is 45b.

Also you can draw a transparent view only if the model is simple. But i prefer the origamipete's idea

Once you fold enough models, you'll start to recognize the proportions formed by certain patterns of creases, and you won't need an app to tell you. (For example, a 22.5deg line forms a 1:(1+sqrt2) rectangle.)
After the fall...we rise.

Thanks Baltiorigamist ..thanks For The reply..Apparently there are apps For Windows on the Market that Can read crease patterns This For ME IS an advancement In tech without taking anything away From The folder.Unless i make prints... angles wont be accurate with only a protractor and set square over a screen ...The feature i Can use Most IS To calculate box pleats...
Ive also just checked Google-playstore.com They have Many apps In That category including Wolfram various Maths divisions...
