Newbie Dimension Question

Recommended Posts

I am new to HD Suites 2015 and have managed to produce a floor plan.  The automatic dimessions seem fine.  But I have some items located throughout the plan where I really want to add location Dimension lines.  An example is a light location.  I want to add dimmension lines from a wall to the lights center.  Ever Dimension tool I try just draw a line and then dissapears on button release.  I can draw dimensions between walls and they stay. Thanks for your help.

CAD > Points > Place Point

 

Place a point at the center of your light. Use the Point to Point Dimension tool to go from the point to a wall.

 

You can then delete the temporary point if your wish.

you can also dimension to cad lines if Suite has the CAD OPTIONS   ( not sure?)

 

you may need to turn on dimensioning to electrical items in the defaults>Dimension>Dimensions settings , (see Pic)
