Abstract: In a former paper we studied transformations on the set of all $ n$-dimensional subspaces of a Hilbert space $ H$ which preserve the principal angles. In the case when $ \dim H\neq 2n$, we could determine the general form of all such maps. The aim of this paper is to complete our result by considering the problem in the remaining case $ \dim H=2n$.
