BUG external arrowhead position in dimension angle command
« on: January 26, 2018, 07:27:32 AM »
Beginning with version 18, the dimension angle command has allowed external arrowhead position, selected either manually or automatically.

As far as I can tell, external arrowheads have never been positioned correctly, except within a narrow range of intermediate radii while in AUTO mode.

One of the arrows is offset from its target line by a distance equal to twice the size of the arrow head.

Also, even when drawing dimensions at a larger radius, the text gap in the dimession arc is too small to fit the text.

Please find time to fix. Thanks.

Hello Ali,

Here's a broader list of issues in Dimension Angle.
Most of these can be avoided by selecting the right parameters.
But, with all the possible parameter combinations, it seems the only reliable way to draw an angle dimension in DC is with a macro.

Thanks,
bd
