Angular Dimensions More than 180° for ACAD 2016

Since the new DIMension command (which I love) has kind of changed the way we do dimensions, here is how you apply an angular degree that is more than 180°.

It has been about 5 years since I first posted about how to do this [here] so it is about time for an update.


  • Dim <enter>
  • Select “Angular”
  • Specify the  Vertex
  • Pick one end of a line
  • Pick the end of another line end
  • Pull away and place the dimension
