I'm teaching a statics course that naturally requires a lot of 
depictions of ropes, springs, pulleys, etc.  To produce a graphic box
I use Ctrl-1 and use the tool palette.  This works, a bit painfully, but 
recently I ran into a need to depict angles with short arcs.  I couldn't 
find a way of doing that that the graphic box would accept.

Is there a way to specify an arc, and if so, how?  I'm running Mathematica under Mac OS X.6.8.  Thanks.

PS, is there a way to delete a cell without using the mouse?  The only 
way I know is to click on the right bracket(s), then hit Delete.
