How do I create an angle dimension in Solidworks? See attached image...
You can add a construction line and if you don't want to show it use the Line Format tool bar and make it white
If you are using SW 2015 you can select the line and the endpoint of the line that you want the dimension originating from, then select the appropriate arrow in the 4-way (vertical arrow in your example)
see here: 2015 What's New in SOLIDWORKS - Enhanced Angle Dimension Capabilities
I have 2014..
... or just hide it.
Or select a reference plane and the edge.
John.. This will work. How do I change the color of the construction line?

I'd move it into a Layer that's turned off.
You forgot to attach a pic -
Is this a sketch or a drawing?
It's a drawing... with a multi-body part referenced.
This doesn't help answer your question. But how would you measure this dimension? The wall has to be 45 deg from...an imaginary line on a drawing. It doesn't really help define the part.
I'm not sure I follow... I'm still pretty new to Solidworks.
The attached image isn't from Solidworks... It's from TurboCAD drawing software. I wasn't very clear about that in my original post. I was trying to figure out how to create an angled dimension like it in Solidworks.
