Is there a default for degree dimensions.

I am doing the steel rim exercise in self paced courses.  One step in the exercise requires an angle of 30 degrees in a circle. Using the dimensions tool I was unable I was unable to get a 30 degree reading by entering the the number 30 in the space shown.  By trail and error I came upon the idea of entering "30 degrees" in the space provided with the dimension tool. 
Here is a link to an image showing what I ended up with  https://cad.onshape.com/documents/bcb959307f1ecd7ebd253531/w/3093cabc90ee1c93f7bcc076/m/9dc6d2420385c6887139efe9/e/2e765a7eb33c054d5f1c9d0f
I believe I got the 30 degree angle but it is written as 0.524 radian. I find that a little awkward. Illustrations of angle measurements show angle in degrees with the degree symbol. Is there some way I can get the angle reading shown as 30 (with the degree symbol)

I also tried to save versions but could can get only the initial image to show. I don't know if this is any good but here is the link anyway. 
I sent it to clipboard but don't know where to find my clipboard.

    Thanks, I don't know how I could have missed it. I looked in my preferences and everything is OK there.
