Dimension Tool Chief 10

Recommended Posts

On an exterior wall , the dimension tool  will do interior surface wall to  exterior surface, but measures to the brick, how do I get it to measure interior surface to interior surface on an exterior wall??  I want Interior surface dimensions only.

Zoom in, select the dimension string, then while selected left-click-drag the dimension point to the layer you desire to measure to, easy-peasy!

Works in any version of Chief or Home Designer software.
