Flip dimension measurement?

Recommended Posts

How do we flip the dimension numbers from one side of the line to another?


My dimension always appears on the left hand side for a vertical line and on the top for horizontal line... Can I make them appear on the bottom or right side?


How do I do it?

Open your DIMSTYLEMANAGER and consider the numerous text location options.

The FIT tab can also come into play when spaces get tight for text.


If you set your DIMSTYLE up correctly it will do what you want it to.

If you just want to affect one or two dimensions you can do it with the PROPERTIES window, but better to build it into your dimstyle.


It sounds like you would prefer OUTSIDE for the Vertical placement.

Do you want the text aligned to lines or parallel to the bottom of the page?

D1-Xen, can you maybe send an image of what you want?
