Small dimensions covering their own line

Recommended Posts

Every time I place dimensions, smaller dimensions will cover the line of the dimension with its white box. Is there a way to stop this from happening? Either moving the white box, disabling it, or moving the dimension slightly up?

 

See the 3 1/2" and 5 1/2" dimensions in the attached picture.

If you select the dimension, you will see a small box on each of the dimension text.  You can grab each one and move the text to wherever it makes sense.

Yes, that works, but after moving 100 dimensions on a plan it gets tedious and time consuming. I'm looking for a solution to solve the tedious/time consumption problem.

Why are you dimensioning the width of every wall? It is common practice to dimension from the outside face of the framing to the face of the framing when dimensioning a plan. If you are concerned with the Subcontractors being able to differentiate 2x4 and 2x6 wall from each other then use a different hatch pattern for 2x4 and 2x6 walls and create a wall legend.

For cabinet and Interior Deco plans it is common practice to dimension to the inside of the finish layer of the walls.

Go to the default label text box and set it transparent so that the boxes go away.

This is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

      Hello guys

      I have a problem with area calculation area. 

      The room actual size is 3m x 3m ( 9 m2 )
      The wall must be center line. The problem is CA calculate outer side of the room. ( 9.92 m2 )
      How do i get a calculation by center line. ( 9 m2 )

      When having multiple walls joining each other is the a way to align the distance off one room corner to another by dimension instead of dragging which is more difficult and time consuming and not as presise . I tried to alter offset of each room by clicking a wall and changing the dimension and it resizes the room
      Thx

      I'm trying to figure out why I can sometimes click on a dimension on screen and type in the new dimension and other times not find where to click. Am I missing something? I can't find any clear answer in the user guides. Trying to pull a line can be really tedious while simply typing in a number is a sure thing.

      This is something that's started after upgrading to X10.  Working with roof lines, line breaks are appearing on their own making it very difficult to join plane using #2 button.  And before, line breaks would automatically disappear when you straightened a line, now they don't.  I can't find a setting that determines this behavior.
       
      Thanks
