Dimension Tool Settings

Kinga Wolter

I have two questions regarding dimensions:

1. Is staggering elevation dimension possible somehow when markers are overlapping?
Like the Grid Tool has an auto-stagger option.

2. Is there a reason dimension markers' minimum size is 1.42 Pt? Why is Label Tool's Arrowhead can be 0.28 Pt?

Thank you!

No, there is no option for staggering overlapped elevation dimensions. You need to change position of the marker manually. When your elevation dimensions are in the chain - you need to delete overlapped marker and place another one independent, because you cannot shift to the left or right the marker from chained dimension.

I've found that minimum size for dimension marker is 0.5 mm, when for arrow 0.1 mm. No idea, why.
