Angles in drawings

I am wondering if there is a command to force an angular dimension? My situation is a hole for and ejector pin in a core block, we wire edm 1/2 degree draft as lead in for the pin, but no matter what I do, with angles less than a degree or 2 it wants to put a linear dimension, is there some way to to accomplish this?

dimensions, angular

As much as possible Zoom into the area where you will choose the lines to make the angular dimension. Now insert>dimension (click the 2 lines you want the angular dimension between)and place it directly between the 2 lines you just clicked. Then zoom out and drag the dimension to desired location.

Kyle, The config option minimum_angle_dimension sets the minimum angle at which Pro/E will make an angular dimension. Cheers, Tony.

Thank you for the responses guys, Frank, I follow the practice you are describing but with 1/2 degree or less still seems to be a problem. Anthony thanks for that idea, I will give that a try.
