I could have sworn there was a function regarding the golden triangle at one point in the datacad program perhaps with the earlier versions. Was there or is there one?

PAGE 290 D-CAD MANUAL - Golden Mean
To divide a line using Golden Mean:
1. Click on Geometry in the Tools pull-down menu or select Geometry from the Utility menu and
then click on Divide. The Divide menu appears.
2. Click on Golden Mean. You are prompted to Select first point.
3. Select the two end points of the line or simply select the line itself.
If you select the two end points of a line, the longer segment will start at the first end point.
If you want to select the line itself, click on Entity. You are prompted to Select line to be divided for
Golden Section. When you select the line using Entity, the longer segment will appear on the side
of the line that you clicked on.
4. Click in the Drawing Area to select the entity you want to divide. The line is divided and a snap
point appears at the division between the two segments.
