Drawing lines in sketcher, how do I display the cursor position and angle?
The cursor position and angle do however display when drawing centrelines.

I am using Solidworks 2005

Angle is relative (e.g., end point to start point)...

Hello wilsonbm:

You can see the relative x & y position of the mouse cursor when you are in the sketch in the status bar at the bottom of the screen. Angle however is relative such as the end point of a line relative to the start point. If you start a line and look in the property manager, you will see the line length and angle.

Does this help?

Thanks for using the Q&A Board! ;-)
