Dimensioning issue

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi, I have this issue with dimensioning, I click on each wall and it shows that the walls have been checked, but when I place the string it doesn't show all the walls, as shown in the attachment. Any advice appreciated.

Probably those Walls that are not dimensioned are not completely horizontal (or not parallel with the first clicked Wall).
When you click on the edge of the first Wall, the two dimension points appear at the middle of the two sides of the Walls.
Now the dimension line will be perpendicular to that Wall.
All other Walls clicked this way need to be perfectly parallel with that first clicked Wall. If they are not, they will not be dimensioned in that Dimension Chain.
