Problem with drawing angles

I draw two points A and B and a line between them. After that I want to make an angle 28 degrees from point B. I click the line AB and point B, everything is fine and I have a new point C in 28 angle in relative to line AB, everything fine still. But now I want to make a new 28 angle point D from point A (angle between line AB and AD). I want to have two 28 angle lines crossing each other (BC and AD). But now the problem comes. When I click a line between AB, the program things that I want to use the cusp B as a point, not A which I want. The program doesn't give me a chance to click A.

You can click on two points, rather than a line and a point. So clicking A, then B, then saying angle size makes an angle at B, clicking B, then A, then angle size, gives an angle at A. You will have to choose clockwise or anticlockwise too!

Yep. That works. Thanks!
