Measures the angle between three points, or between two lines.

  1. Select three points that define the angle you want to measure.

    The angle is measured and displayed. It is calculated according to the order of selected points.

    The angle is also displayed in the Measurement Info Palette.

    Local menu option:  
    By Entity: Measures the angle between two lines. The lines must intersect (this tool does not infer where extensions of lines will meet).

  2. Select the first line. The point you select on the line defines the angle that will be measured.

  3. Select the second line, and the angle is displayed.

    In this example, if you selected the lines in a different location, you will measure a different angle.
