Dimension Rotation

Hi Everyone

 

I don't know what I am doing wrong but all I want to do is rotate one dimension. I want to leave all the others alone.

When I am editing my drawing, I double click on the dimension and get the diag box and unfortunately the rotate dimension command along with the degree box is grayed out.

 

Thanks

 

Randy

You will have to create another dimension style.

 

Go to the Styles and Standards Editor on the Manage Tab --> Styles and Standards Panel

 

In the Dimension Area of the left, create a new dimension style and change the settings for the Text Tab --> Orientaion -->Linear to use an In-Line style.

 

Then select your dimension on the Format Panel at the end of the Annotate Ribbon Tab, select your new dimension style from the list.
