Q1.what makes the arrows instead point inwards as my item is too narrow for outward pointing ones,
Q2. how does one move the numbers off to one side , either left or right of arrows mid point as sitting on an object sometimes obscures them,. I double click the dimension and shift the <> using space to the right but that doesnt do it.
I do know how to add extra text, type to right of the <>.
Q3. As I have inch then [inch fraction] I could do with inch dec above the [ inch fraction] then the arrow line under that where display space is tricky.
Q4. or sometimes arrow line above the text, so its inch dec then [inch fract] below the arrow line.
How are these done in V5 ?
…anyone please must get plans off and cannot get dims in place !
then I can get win7 to win10 and get v7 installed.
Hi Steve - turning on dimension control points will let you move stuff around.
I see no control points for the characters, just the arrows and lines, they dont have any effect on placement of the dims characters relative to the arrows.
If I select the mid point between two arrows and hit left arrow key I get inward pointing arrows…that problem is solved, looks better on narrow parts.
If I want the text at right angles to the arrows, no way found..
Numbers to right of centre, I have now discovered place a few spaces to right of <> AND ADD A FULL STOP, then they can be moved, though a dot appears off to right, so a bit messy..
Numbers to left of centre, place a few spaces before <> and adjust number of spaces to suit.
To get inches imperial above [inches fractional] or perhaps cm above inches, no way found..
arrows above the text, maybe offset and a minus figure doesnt work, so no way found. .
