Using Automatic Dimensions

Creating accurately sized objects is important for a realistic landscape design. To help you create objects of the exact size you desire, you can enable automatic dimensions. When adding or editing points, the distance between the points will be displayed.

To toggle automatic dimensions on or off:

1.   Select Edit > Dimensions or press Ctrl+D.

2.   The next time you add or edit points, the dimensions will be displayed.

The following shows a bay window with automatic dimensions enabled. Note that the 8' dimension refers to the length of the wall, not the window.

Tips:

      When calculating the distance between points, any elevation differences are ignored. That is, the dimension displays the length of the line or curve between the points assuming the line or curve is on a flat plane.

      Automatic dimensions only appear when adding or editing points. To add dimensions manually, see Adding a Dimension.
