To make the remaining points visible you would need to add a dummy direction
and distance on the last leg. For example, you could enter NW; 500f; and
see what it looks like.
N76 1' 57.6" W can be entered as
You're correct that it will not take decimals on the seconds value.

Subject: [DMU] Help for deed with arc
I know DeedMapper can't do arcs but can I somehow get the rest of
points in the correct position while leaving out the segment with the arc?
Here is what I have:
Pt 1 - Creosoted timber pile driven at mean low water
Ln s59.89572e; 2234f;
Pt 2 - Steel railroad rail
! Easterly following an arc of a circle with 985 ft radius for 1736.89f
Lm ; 1736.89f; this is the arc
Pt 3 - Steel rail at the point of tanget of the curve
Ln s19.07261w; 589.38f;
Pt 4 - Creosoted pile on the mean low water line
Ln s29.81483w; 367.07f;
Pt 5 - Cross cut in southerly stone wall of moat sluice way (same as "F")
Ln n76.0327w; 1325f;
Pt 6 - Mean low water line
Lm ; ; following mean low water line in NW direction to the beginning
Between point 2 and 3 the deed follows the arc of a circle for 1736.89
feet. If I
continue entering points after that, the plot I get doesn't make
any sense. I am sure it is not correct. Is there anyway for me to see the
rest of the points in the correct relative positions? Perhaps reversing the
Also, I had to convert my directions such as N76 1' 57.6" W to decimal
degrees (n76.0327w) - please verify this is correct. DM didn't like the
