Cannot dimension in section elevation views.

The cursor goes weird on the elevation view trying to drag a dimension.

Can you try to use the auto storypole dims and do you have your dims setup to locate framing?

This is what I get using framing deminsion defaults. I'm really not familiar with mm so maybe someone else can look at it.

The plan is Really slow George , at least for me , so you have to drag REALLY slowly or I think I get the craziness you describe.... either Vertically or Horizontally using the Manual Dim. Tool , vertical seems worse...I wasn't sure what Mode you were using from the OP..... and you didn't save a Camera either , so I'm not sure if it a particular Camera you are using...

 

by default you Elevation camera ( Annotation) was Using 1:1000 Scale (numbers were huge) which made it worse .....1:50 Scale was better..... tried smaller too

 

I didn't download all the textures in the Folder , not sure if that is my slowness issue ? or not.....assuming you don't see that it maybe...

*** redownloaded entire Folder but no difference.

really slow in Elevation though other views didn't seem bad , eg 3D overview was okay....

 

Tried a side and back-clipped Elevation to one building and it was a (very) little better...

 

you and I have the same VideoCard so I don't think it is that....

Slow for me too.

 

 

 

That's about it for me too.... I've not seen this issue before though with Dims , so slow to populate....

Thanks for looking at the model.

I don't understand I have a good video card, I find it very slow in elevation.

We have sent the model to CA and they don't see any issues with it.

Appart from Perry we all find it slow and sluggish in elevation.

      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 )

      Hello, when I doing the auto interior dimension, why am i getting exterior dimensions as well?

      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.

      Hello,
       
      I am wondering if there is a way for when automatic dimensions are turned on if there is a way to adjust where the dimension arrows go. We are trying to get it to where it'll be from outside the drywall to the next outside drywall and so on. I will include a picture on what I am trying to explain. For the exterior wall, it is starting on the far outside left and then stops after the first drywall rather than going to the outside of that exterior room's drywall.
