No. You need to use one of the Cross Section cameras.

Thank you

I have created cross section and backclipped cross section views (HD Pro 2020)

 

The "end to end" and "tape measure" tool functions work correctly and show / record a dimension and send it to a layout.

The "end to end" and "angular dimension" tools do not work.

 

Why are the "end to end" and "angular dimension" functions not working?

Do I not have a default setting correct, or is it a software install issue?

 

I am a new user of HD Pro 2020 that was purchased and installed 12/8/19.
