Trying to select dimensions, but getting rooms

Recommended Posts

I'm wasting a lot of time on this and looking for a solution. 

 

I'm doing interior dimensions and when I try to adjust the dimension string locations I keep getting the room polygons. I hit tab to cycle to other objects, but still not getting the dimensions. Any ideas?

 

Second question. I want to change the default text size on the interior dimension strings. How?

You can always turn off or lock a layer that is getting in the way of things.  Just keep your Active Layer Display Options open and what ever you accidentally select will be highlighted there.

You can also "Tab" through and dimension will highlight.

Try increasing your Snap Distance at Preferences...Edit...Snap Properties...Options...Snap Distance.

 

Second answer:

Could be several places, depending on your setup.

Current Dimension Default which may use "Use Layer for Text Style", "Use Text Style" , or "Use Custom Text Style".

You can also try this: Before trying to select a dimension string, click on the parent dimension tool on your top toolbar first, then Chief will find the dimension string first when trying to select the dimension string instead of other objects.

I use layersets that have Rooms locked when doing interior dimensions. If you are using premier those can be tied to annotation sets at the same time which solves other dimension issues.
