Ok y'all I'm in 2004 is there any way to draw line at a specific angle? Say 32?
Thanks Jake

1. copy and paste the original line in place

2. rotate the copy line by the needed angle

Simplest method without getting into command line instructions.

There is probably 100+ ways to accomplish what you want in AutoCAD . . .

I always go the simplest route . .

"snapang" is the command I use a lot of times, although I have a changed the keyboard command to make it easier to use.

once you enter the command it asks you what angle you'd like and when you put your degree in you'll notice your crosshairs change to that degree. As long as "F8" is "ON" (ortho) you can draw a straight line at that angle.
