Finding the biggest angle between lines
Answered
Hello, I'm trying to use the angle tool (or the command) to calculate the angle between two lines that intersect each other, however it always seems to choose the smaller one, which is what we want in most cases, but right now I need the biggest one, which is the smaller's supplementary. I can always put three points and force the angle I want using them, but is there an elegant way to do it using the angle tool or perhaps another command? maybe a command that gets me the supplementary angle? I couldn't find anything like that, so please help me out, thanks in advance!

You can set the option for an angle to be 0360. Also maybe check out the atan2(y,x) command
One possibility (with draw the angle in the graphic)
sorry above version 01 is wrong.
use this version 02 (include check direction angle:= smaller of {ABC or CBA)}
Note: if you need only the value, then exists more easy solutions.
Another, simpler solution.
Answering questions without feedback from the questioner is not something I really like.

@Michael
The fact that my reprimand has just hit you, is pure coincidence.I wanted to criticize this habit generally, which is spreading more and more.
Feedback is not so much a matter of thanks as of finding out whether the answer was exactly what the questioner wanted. Only in this way can I learn by myself.
In this sense: thank you very much for the feedback.
