Using Automatic Dimensions

To help you create shapes with accurate sizes, the Automatic Dimensions option is enabled by default. These show the distance between points whenever you add or edit the points of an object.

To toggle automatic dimensions on or off: From the Settings menu, select Show Auto Dimensions. Or press Ctrl+D.

The example below shows the dimensions that appear when adding a deck.

Tip (Architect): When Automatic Dimensions are enabled, they will only appear while editing points. If you want to add persistent dimensions to your design in Realtime Landscaping Architect, see Adding a Linear Dimension.
