As can be see here - the angular dimensions are a mess
I would like to creat the dimensions like this below

2016 SOLIDWORKS Help - Creating Angular Running Dimensions
Angular Running Dimensions tool creates dimensions similar to Ordinate Dimensions, but for a series of angles from a common center.
I did try that but obviously I wasn't doing it correctly. I also went into settings and did as the tutorial suggested, and still didn't work. I can see I need to review this again and have another go
OK, have sorted it out thanks; by selecting angular running dimension in the smart dimension dropdown and then I needed to click on the radial line I wanted to be 0 degrees, this shows as 0 degrees, then next click on a vertice that represents the point I wanted to measure as an angle from the baseline and continue clicking on each vertice I needed to show these angular measurements.
Then with an angular measurement selected on the drawing I could go to the dimensions property manager and under the leaders tab - by unchecking the "display as chain dimension" I could display the angular dimensions without the circumferential line.
It took a bit of fiddling about to understand the sequence, but I finally got it.
You're welcome Pal
