Wall Dimension Labels not Visible! HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

Just downloaded a trial version of CA HDPro and when I create walls it shows the dimensions as I create and if I click on the wall later - but I want the dimensions on all the time and for the life of me I cannot get this to work! Can somebody be so kind as to advise me? Ive gone through the Layer / Display Options and no matter what I do they won't appear and stay on visually.

 

Much THANK YOU! in advance.

That's really annoying, but you can turn on auto dimensions. Open help and search for auto dimensions.

Eric, thank you for the response ... when I go to auto dimensions it says:

 

No automatic dimensions were generated. Make sure that there are proper room definitions and try again.

 

What am I missing?

Auto dimensions only work when you have defined a room, or rooms.

 

Start a new plan, draw 4 walls connected to form a room, then try auto dimensions.

 

Most people use temporary dimensions to position walls. The Tutorial (via the Help menu) goes over creating a plan.

Thank you Eric!


I thought I had exhausted all resources but YT is proving quite helpful in more ways than one.

 

Thanks again!
