Which one is the arc length? Looks like the leader dim is the radius, no? If
you change the angle, it still keeps the same dim.

The vertical line is the arc length in both examples. In the first example
change the angle or radius to get the length. In the second change the
length or radius to get the angle...

Personally, I vote that the code for the drawing arc length be copied and
used in the Part model
IMHO.
