Measure Angles in 2D DWF files

I work for a company that produces models and drawings using Inventor (2010 I think).  The drawings are in DWF format.

 

I just downloaded Autodesk Design Review (whatever th elatest version is) and tried to do some markups and measurements.  The software works great except for one thing, I can't figure out how to measure angles.

 

There is an angle measurement button, but it is greyed out on 2D drawings.  I see in the help files that it is for measuring angles in 3D.

 

How can I measure angles in 2D?

 

I can use my trig skills to get angles, but that is insane!

 

Other than this I think the software is great!

Thank you for your feedback.

 

Currently ADR does not support measure angles in 2D.

 

I've added this request to our WISHLIST database. We will consider it for possible inclusion in future releases.

Please let me know if I can be of any further help.

I hope this is still on the wish list because I am having to do some crazy drawing to deal with angles for assignements in class. 

Thanks,

Hi, 

 

To follow up on this, the icons are within Design Review 2011 and 2012 so i assume they are now included? But they are always greyed out. Measure angle and Point Location would be useful as would the length/radius tool. Are they available? 


Cheers

Thank you for your feedback.

 

The existing icons are only available for 3D DWF/x file for now. Your request will be added in our wishlist defect.

Is this feature still on the wishlist?  AutodeskDesign Review 2012 still has the angle measurement icon greyed out for a 2D drawing.

 

Is there any workaround (short of printing the drawing and using a protractor)?
