Applying degrees and minutes to angle dimension

    OK, so how do I get this dimensioned? 5 deg and 55 minutes. I'm modeling a part for fun and ran across this.

    I suppose I could figure out how to convert this to a decimal, but I am wondering if the program can deal with this.

    Perhaps a look at the "properties" for drawings would help you.....

    There it is, degrees, radians, degrees/minutes, or degrees/minutes/seconds.

    Since it is an available measurement unit, Alibre should convert it to the default you have set (probably degrees)

    Ok, I was glossing that setting over. Thanks!

    You can directly enter it in sketch mode. Dimension the angle and change the value to 5°55'. It works! If you lose the ° degree sign then re-enter it by holding ALT and typing 248 on the numpad
