Mapcheck analysis report Delta Angle in DMS

I can't get a mapcheck to report my delta angles in DMS. It will only show DD. Bearings are fine, it's only a problem with deltas. 

 

In Toolspace > Reports Manager > Parcel settings, I set the Curve Segment Delta Angle format to DMS. Didn't work. Tried switching it to Decimal then back to DMS. Nope. I can execute a M&B or Inverse report and they will give me DMS, but the Mapcheck report will not. 

 

Also, in the Parcel Properties window, Analysis tab, both Inverse and Mapcheck report only DD for deltas.

 

Around here backchecks on legals are done using delta, len, rad. I guess we could rely on only len and rad, just don't want to. 

On the settings tab, right click on the drawing name and choose, "Edit Drawing Settings". 

 

On the Ambient Settings tab, expand out Direction and change the format to what you need.

Aha,

Direction was already set to DMS but I noticed right above that is Angle, which was still set to Decimal. I think you were leading me to find the answer on my own, and I commend you for that. :smileyhappy:
