editing dimensions

Recommended Posts

I have edited dimensions before, but seem to be doing something different now. I created an end to end dimension, then single clicked it, which just selected it. Double clicking opened up a popup diemsion line spec window. 

 

Thanks,

Dan

I found that clicking and dragging to select at least one end of the line seems to work. Is that it and is there any other way to do this?

In WHAT WAY, or what is the reason you need to edit dimensions? Do you wish to edit the dimension points of a dimension string? do you wish to edit the size of the display? Do you wish to change the "arrow" type of dimension strings? Do you wish to display dimensions values in Imperial or Metric or both? Please be specific with your questions so those that wish to help, then can.

What do you mean by edit?

 

Do you want to change the displayed value?

 

Do you want to move something that is being dimensioned?

change the length of the line. I drug the perimeter around the house which left the house a bit different than I wanted. Didn't want 22' 6" but 25' even, for example.

Select the edge of the perimeter then click the dimension. Change to 25'.
