Dimension arc length in sketch

How can you make a dimension of arc length in the sketcher?
I know you can dimension both end points and give it a radius, but I need to dimension the length of the arc line.

You can dimension the length of an arc on a drawing, but there is no Sketch command to constrain (dimension) the length of an arc.

You could measure the length of the arc while in the sketch.

Ugh.

Thanks for the answer!

I've used SolidWorks for about 10 years, and am now learning CATIA. So far, it sucks.

Ha Ha. Give it some time. It's always hard to learn a new system after you've been using the old system for so long (10 years).
