Dimension 2 lines on an angle


I have 2 lines on a 20 degree angle. How do I get a dimension aligned with these
lines.
Also, I have a hole that I need to dimension from the 20 degree line to the center
of the hole. All I get is either a horizontal or vertical dimension.
Thanks

Re: Dimension 2 lines on an angle

Brojt,
Use the Distance Between dimension command. Set the combo box in Command Bar
to 'By 2 Points'.
Simply select the lines somewhere along the lines. The dimensions will align
with the first line selected.
Do not select the ends of the lines. This will force the dimension to be
placed relative to the keypoints (shortest distance).
