Cannot Draw Angular Dimension between Linear Dimensions

Question

Earlier today I was able to draw an angular  dimension between two linear dimensions, now for no apparent reason I cannot select the linear dimensions when I have the angular dimension tool selected.

 

This worked:

But here VW will not allow me to draw an angle between the two diagonal dimensions:

Any ideas? Thanks all!

Do you get a message at the bottom of the screen about "Angular dimensions can only be between intersecting objects"?

 

If so, it is likely that your linear dimensions are not snapped to the same point.

The dimensions don't even turn red to indicate that the tool is hovering over them, it's like the tool doesn't even see them. They're definitely snapped to the same point, and it works just as expected with the Line object. I've also tried restarting VW. For now I'm just drawing a regular line over the dimension and using that, but it's super weird.
