Dimensioning in an .idw

I need to know how to dimension to a theoretical sharp on bent flanges.  In an .idw it wont snap to the sharp and when a schetch is created for one it does not dimension between them only one or the other.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you

On a flange that is more or less than 90 degrees, pick your first edge, right click and select intersection, then select the second edge.
