Move the end of the dimension line

You can move the end of the dimension lineline that visualizes the distance between the defined dimension points

Separate dimensions can be combined into a longer dimension line.

In orthogonal model view the size of the objects is the same despite of their distance to the viewing point and the zoom remains on part faces.

to itself outside the part. The dimension tags are moved together with the end of the line. This is useful when the tags would otherwise cover part geometry or other objects, such as dimensions or marks.

Limitations: You can move the end of the dimension line in all straight dimensions, except elevation dimensions.

  1. In an open drawing, click the dimension.

    The dimension line handle becomes visible.

  2. Select the handle and drag the end of the line to the desired position.

    It is easier to select the handle when your hold down Alt and then click the handle.

    If the dimension contains dimension tags, the tags are visible while you drag.
