Dimension Snaps

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to turn off dimension snaps.  I'm trying to dimension my slab to the exterior walls.  The auto dimensions snap to the edge of the brick ledge.  When I try to do the dimensions manually, the program is constantly snapping to places I don't want or inexplicably adds 1/2" to my dimension.  How can I place dimensions with no snaps?

Turn grid snaps off, and/or check your dimension defaults for Locate Items.

If it's the outside edge, that's the edge of the slab.

With object snaps off, I discovered that when I placed a dimension on a wall and then tried to place a dimension on an adjacent wall, the new dimension would snap to the previous dimension point.  Even though the original dimension would be from outside of one wall to the outside of another, it might not necessarily be on the corner.  If I had not placed the original dimension point perfectly on the corner, it would throw my second dimension off by as much as 1/2".  I found success by zooming in really close for precise placement.  I also had to learn that I could zoom out and back in while holding the mouse.
