I am trying to generate a north,south, east, west elevations that include measurement (e.g ground to peak).  I have been able to generate a perspective view but the measurement functions are disabled (grayed out).  I have looked in the user manual and could not find any how to information,  Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Thanks for the quick response.  I am using PRO 2021 and I will add that info to my profile settings.  I miss-stated - it was not Perspective View it was the Orthographic view that I used to generate the Elevation.  This is where I am stuck.  How can the exterior dimensions get displayed on an elevation?  I can manually place measurements but do not want to calculate the ground to ridge line distance.  I am thinking that information should be brought over from the wall height and pitch.

Open a cross section/elevation camera view...voila...an elevation appears that can be dimensioned...easily found by searching Help for "elevation"...as suggested by Eric...

Thanks Rick. I have gone through those steps and can get the “elevation”.  Is there a way to automatically load the dimensions from wall, window, and roof pitch specifications or do I have to manually place those dimensions.

I too have been looking for a way to generate elevations that include dimensions. It's a simple question which should have a clear response. 
@solver, your responses come across as monumentally arrogant and generally unhelpful. 

I hope you're okay. Good luck with whatever caused that.
