Setting the dimension extension line length
You can adjust the length of the dimension extension lines.
To adjust the extension line settings:
- Go to the General tab of the Dimensions dialog box.
- Select an option from the Short extension line list:
Use this option to create extension lines all of the same length:
On grid lines only
Use this option to use the short extension line automatically if a dimension line falls on a grid line. Elsewhere the extension line will be as usual.
- Click OK.
- If you need to adjust the extension line lengths, go to Tools > Options > Advanced Options > Dimensioning: General and use the following advanced options:
Use XS_DIMENSION_EXTENSION_LINE_TOWARD_FACTOR to adjust the length of the dimension extension lines that are facing towards the dimension points.
Use XS_DIMENSION_EXTENSION_LINE_AWAY_FACTOR to adjust the length of the dimension extension lines that are facing away from the dimension points.
