I know this should be simple, but it is Pro E.  I have created a line that has a shallow anlge ~0.5 degrees.  The center line and the angle line do not converge.  I know that I should be able to simply create an angluar dimension but it always creates a linear dimension. Any tips on forcing Pro E to create a angluar dimension??  I'm using wildfire 2.0

Set this config option smaller than the dimension you want to create:

One trick you can use while doing a sketch. Exagerate the angle, sketch it about 15 degrees or so, then change the number to .5 degrees. (You may still need to change the config option.)
