1. ## Angular dimension edit issue , ACAD 2010

This is angular dimension of the arc, in my drawing ( picture 1)

I need for my, angular dimension to be identical as here (2) :

I have menaged to reposition right arrow and extension line (3) :

Problem is obvious, extension is sloping to the left, I want this line to overlaps withe red one. How can I achieve this ?

2. If the radius point of the arc doesn't lie on the 'red' line, none of the dimension commands will do what you want... you'll need to 'draw' the dimension (which is poor drafting practice). The extension lines should converge (the apparent intersection) on the radius point.

I've looked at the second picture more carefully, neither of the arcs are not centered at dashed red line intersection. Is there any way to set angular dimension, given center point (in my case intersection) , osnap endpoind on the left, and orthogonal dashed line ?

4. You need to draw the centerlines and use those to define the angular dimension. The 55 degree dimension isn't related to either of the arcs, it's there to locate the nose of the hook.

Thank you

I should have paid more attention to the command line

6. Of course, if you were going down the road of poor drafting practice, you could always explode the dimension, and edit the end to suit

7. How about posting the drawing?

Yes, but there is another thing I come across : picture 1

I follow these instructions, but in the fourth step I'm having this :2

Angle (third item in square barckets), applies not to the extension lines, but to the dimension text, so I been missing : Horizontal, Vertical, Rotated, and Rotated is exactly what I need. Is there an solution for this problem ?
