Q - question

How to dimension arc length?

A - answer AutoCAD can dimension only arc angle, not length. You can use a short LISP utility - DIMARC, which works the same as angular dimension but displays length of the arc. DIMARC can be downloaded from Download.

For an associative dimension you can use the LiveLabel utility.

Since AutoCAD 2006 you can use the internal DIMARC dimensioning command.
