Not to beat a dead horse, but I did a search on angle dimensions and came up with the answer that what I want to do is not possible in Alibre.

Here is what I want to do. I want to do an angle dimension that would result in 280 degrees what I get is 80 degrees. Not a useful value if using a rotary table. Not sure what use it. The actual dimensions on

my part are of course not exactly 280 but you get the issue. The dimension I get is73 degrees 44 minutes 23.263 seconds, again not sure what good it is if using a manual machine.

Yes I can add and subtract, did it for years when drawing by hand, but at the price of Alibre Design Expert software I had hoped to eliminate manual addition (along with its likely errors).

Simple question - is there something I do not understand without drawing all kinds of auxiliary lines etc.

Thank You
