LayOut dimensions/ shape style

Got an idea to improve LayOut?

LayOut dimensions/ shape style

Postby DaniVork » Mon Nov 16, 2020 10:07 am


Im new to this forum and i wanted to ask this here:

Can you make it so when I add dimensions to my LayOut it will automatically detect wether I am measuring from a side of the object or the canter of it. So when I add dimensions from side to side it uses arrows but when I add a dimension from a side to the center of an object it will use another style arrow. (the astrix one for example)

Welcome to the forum DaniVork.

I doubt if the Layout dimension tool could be made to recognise different dimensioning end points. However, you can set up as many dimension styles as you need within the same Layout file. Use a dummy dimension on the page and sample it with the eye-dropper tool before adding a new dimension. Or, use the eye-dropper to update an existing dimension. Ideally, save your dimension in a Scrapbook to use in future work. The Layout dimension system is very customisable, you could, for example have the astrix you like on just one end of the dimension line.

Good luck!
