Dimensions and Polylines

Recommended Posts

In a CAD view, I cannot pull a dimension between two sides of a closed polyline.  When I disconnect all of the lines, the dimensions still do not show up.
However, if I draw two separate cad lines, the dimension will show up between the two cad lines.

Is there a dimension or polyline setting that will allow me to dimension between to lines of a single (or multiple) polylines?

This was not any problem in my old Chief V10, but the new one has me outsmarted.  On lots of fronts.

Thanks in advance.

Are the sides you're trying to dimension parallel to each other? They might not be truly parallel to each other.

Lines are parallel.  I am working around by drawing a line between the two lines I want to dimension, opening the line to see the length, adding arrows to both ends and manually typing in the line length.  PIA at best.

 

Thanks,

Please add your Chief version to your signature.

 

I'd check "Locate Objects" for CAD under the Dimension Defaults.

Do you think that posting the plan may help?

Glen, it may have, but I deleted it and started over.  The plan was opened from my old V10, then saved in PremierX10.  It was a small plan and I thought maybe the fact that it was from a previous version may have had something to do with the problem.

When I duplicated it from scratch in Premier X10 I had no problems.
