Dimension extension line lengths...

Post by stjohn » Thu Nov 20, 2008 4:09 pm

I would like to be able to place my dimension text as far away from the entity as necessary. For some reason I can't do this, it stops after a small distance. How do I change this? (I have a nested set of dimensions that need quite a bit of space to place them all)

many thanks,

You should be able to move the text label of a dimension entity wherever you want. The procedure is:

- select dimension entity
- move mouse cursor on top of the blue point of the text label
- press left mouse button down and hold it down
- move mouse somewhat
- let go of left mouse button
- click somewhere in the drawing to place the label (you can use snap function for this as usual)
