Dimension Chain ?

Not applicable
I have just installed AC22 on a new computer. On my old computer, when dimensioning, if I select a wall (sets a point at each side of the wall), I then get to select another point or wall before placing the dimension location. On my new computer, I select the wall and the dimension is immediately placed where I clicked to select the wall. I cannot find any setting to change this behavior. Can someone point me in the right direction to fix this?


In the Dimensions settings, check the Dimension Type. It sounds like it is not set to Linear Method. Same setting under Construction Method in the Info Box.

There is a new button in the settings that immediately places just the wall thickness.
I am not in front of Archicad at the moment so I can’t paste an image.

It is in the geometry method settings an is called ‘single click thickness’.
Hopefully this link will show you the correct page in the manual.
