Text below dimension line


does anybody know, if it’s possible to paste an additional text under the dimension line? I was used to use it in V5, but didn’t find any solution in V6 :slight_smile:

Thanks, Petr

Is this what you’re looking for?


This works in V6 as well, you can either select the text and do it in the Properties window, or double click it to edit it. You might need to scooch the dividers in the window a bit to see the editing field.


John - not exactly. This option allows me only to put alternate units under the dim line, but I would like to use my own text.

Sam - please, I am obviously missing something, Is there any command or character for putting the text bellow the dim line?

The approach in V5 - make the dimension -> double click the dimension -> click behind the dim symbols -> hit enter -> write a text = finished
