CHAPTER 11: Dimensioning > Editing Dimensions

Editing Dimensions

Dimensions have grips that allow you to reposition extension lines, the dimension line, and dimension text independently of one another. In the following steps, you will edit the length and location of extension and dimension lines directly with grips, adjust a dimension style to affect the appearance of dimension objects, and use a few specialized dimension-editing commands:

  1. If the file is not already open, browse to Chapter 11, get the file Ch11-D.dwg, and open it.
  2. images Toggle on Object Snap mode on the status bar if it is not already on. Right-click the Object Snap button and turn on Endpoint and Intersection running object snap modes.
  3. images Click the horizontal linear dimension with a value of 2.236 to select it. Click the lower-left grip to adjust the length of this extension line. Snap the grip to point A, as shown in Figure 11.22. Press Esc to deselect.
