Tips:

      Once a dimension has been added, it can be easily changed. See Editing Points for more information.

      This and other plan detail can only be added and edited in the plan view. If you want to add a dimension that also appears in the perspective view, use the 3D Dimension object

      See Adding Plan Detail for more information about plan detail objects.

      Make sure grid-snap is enabled, or it will be difficult to draw the dimension using exact measurements. See Snap Settings for more information.
