Status Bar information on Straight Lines

Corel X3   Corel Draw
When I draw a straight line, a line of text appears on the Status Bar (I think that's what it's called) showing me the DX: and DY: points and the Distance: but with ... after it indicating there is more information. I know that one of the bits of information I can't see is the angle of the line.                                                                    How do I extend this information line so it shows me the extra info?   (I'm particularly interested in the line angle)       and    How do I get this information line to stay on screen after I've clicked the End Point for the line? (Currently it reverts to 'curve on layer 1') as soon as I click the end point of the line)
