Dimension Line

A Dimension Line is always inserted on the layer called Dimension Lines. If you set that layer to invisible, you will not see any Dimension Line in your drawing.

āˇāļļāˇāļŗāˇāļē

Sets the distance properties of the dimension line and the guides with respect to each other and to the baseline.

Line distance

Specifies the distance between the dimension line and the baseline (line distance = 0).

Guide overhang

Specifies the length of the left and right guides starting at the baseline (line distance = 0). Positive values extend the guides above the baseline and negative values extend the guides below the baseline.

Guide distance

Specifies the length of the right and left guides starting at the dimension line. Positive values extend the guides above the dimension line and negative values extend the guides below the dimension line.

Left guide

Specifies the length of the left guide starting at the dimension line. Positive values extend the guide below the dimension line and negative values extend the guide above the dimension line.

Right guide

Specifies the length of the right guide starting at the dimension line. Positive values extend the guide below the dimension line and negative values extend the guide above the dimension line.

Dimension line below the object

Reverses the properties set in the Line area.

Decimal places

Specifies the number of decimal places used for the display of line properties.

Legend

Sets the properties of the dimension text.

Text position

Determines the position of the dimension text with respect to the dimension line and the guides.

The AutoVertical and AutoHorizontal checkboxes must be cleared before you can assign the Text position.

AutoVertical

Determines the optimal vertical position for the dimension text.

AutoHorizontal

Determines the optimal horizontal position for the dimension text.

Show meas. units

Shows or hides the dimension measurement units. You can also select a measurement unit you want to display from the list.

Parallel to line

Displays the text parallel to or at 90 degrees to the dimension line.

Preview Field

Displays a preview of the current selection.
