Command : DIMANGULAR

Angular dimensions annotate the angle measured between two lines, two linear segments of a polyline or the angle of a circular arc. You can also dimension an angle by selecting an angle vertex and two endpoints.

Starting from an existing angular dimension, you can add a baseline dimension or a continued dimension. An angular baseline dimension inserts an additional dimension from a common first extension line origin. An angular continued dimension continues an angular dimension from the second extension line of a previous angular dimension.

**Angular**in the**Dimensions**menu. - Type
**dimangular**in the command bar, then press Enter.

You are prompted: Press Enter to specify angle/<select line, arc, or circle>:

2. Select the first line or line segment.

You are prompted: Other line for angular dimension:

3. Select the second line or line segment.

The angular dimension displays dynamically.

You are prompted: Angle/Text/<Location of dimension arc>:
