Hey ev1 ! 

Does anybody know if is or will be possible to use an angle constraint that could work like the dimension one in skecthes ?

    @Guillaume You can use new mate connector and use move to set angle.

    I would like to see angle also in offset for certain mate connectors, but creating new connector is easy so not very high priority on this matter..

    @3dcad : my question was about scketches, not parts.... unless I misunderstood your message ? Thanks anyway :)

    @Guillaume Ok, I misunderstood your question I thought you were already familiar with the dimension tool and wanted to know how to position parts in similar way.

    I selected the two lines.  However, it is not showing me the angle.
