# Curve Length Dimension

instead of a leader with the curve length dimension in a text box.
is their a way to have something similar to the dimangle command just with a curve length dimension instead of an angle dimension. and the arch length symbol above the text would be nice also.

Use the Text command.
After picking a start point when you get the dialog for entering the text, select the Text Field button “fx”, choose CurveLength, click the Select Object button, pick your curve and OK.
The text will be the curve length and associated to the curve.
If you Point edit the curve, the text will change.

thanks for that method i never tried it that way. Is their a way to still have the extension lines and dimension arrows as shown? I like the way the dimangle command looks, but it would be nice to have the curve length instead of the angle dimension.
