manual dimensions

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to dimension by clicking two points and then show the dimension of the x or y-axis? If I use point to point and do this I get an angled dimension. Manual dimensions give me so much info I end up changing so much. Trying to figure out how to simplify dimensioning the interior framing of a house. 

 

Thanks

Could you show us an example (screen capture) of what you want to dimension?

I agree with Erick it is not 100% clear what you are looking for.  Pictures would help.

 

My guess is you may want to look at end to end dimensions though.

If you end up with an angled dimension and you want it to be orthogonal, and you don't want to muck around with dimension settings you can always use the Make Parallel tool and click on an object that is drawn orthogonal.
