Dimension Extension Gap - Doors & Windows


Recommended Posts

Anyone know why dimension extensions on doors and windows have locate points so far out from the object? See image.


It makes it difficult if you want to show a consistent gap from marked object down the string. 

I searched the forum and couldn't find any other threads dealing with the question, searched help with no luck, and watched a CA video that showed the same offset of the locate points, but it didn't address the offset.


I know we can set "distance toward marked object" which can force the extensions to be all the same length, but if the dimension line is moved the gap will change.


Anyway, just curious if anyone knows why these locate points are different for doors and windows, and if there's a setting somewhere that changes it...
