I am not i understand you correctly or not.

If you want to show the dimension overthere, i think the available options is u can use constuction lines.

If you need to create the  holes as per the dimension? go to sketch and use circular pattern.

• Create  Center points for the circles by using sketch option.
•  Exit sketch
•  Then select the dimension tool pick the three center points defined first

see attached for more clear ....

Hopes this will help u ....

How much Inventor training and/or experience do you have?  Can you post a screen shot of the dimension as it looks now?  I don't know what part of the dimension appearance is causing you a problem, so no idea how to advise you.

well, it's even easier than that: no need to create a sketch and center points. you can snap to the centers of the holes directly. by the way ; this works in model sketches also.

cheers

Are you asking how to create this as a 'sketch'?  If so, you'll need to utilize construction lines to dimension the angle.
