Dimension Lines

Recommended Posts

I typically put the exterior wall dimensions on my plot plan around the perimeter of the house but I don't use the dimension lines. I just put the text. But can I dimension it as normal but not show the lines with arrow?

 

Does that make sense?

I understand as I use to do what you described in Autocad with a dimstyle without arrows or lines. Perhaps can do same thing. I'll check in this tomorrow and see what options are available. If the footprint lines could be labeled automatically like lot perimeter lines but without angles that would work too.

Good question, I bet if the line style was white or no color, the text would show but dimension lines don't

Put the dimension on a separate layer. In Layer Display Options, under Line Style, change it to "no line" in the drop down menu. Then click on the dimension and open the Dimension Line Specification and go to the Arrow tab and change the fill color to white.
