By angled, do you mean "tilted" in the vertical plane?
You have to think how will this actually get built in the real world.
Probably need some custom triangular infill walls at jambs, and a soffit at the door head.
You are correct--there are no automatic dimensions, can't Activate Dimensions when the door is placed in a Tilted Wall.
(Wall by Face of Mass). You will need to build another wall toward the inside/interior of the tilted wall to host the door,
as the door seems to insert itself at the intersection of the midpoint of the door's height / opening cut.
No. That would be sloped I am inserting a door into a non-orthographic wall (multiple of 45 degrees). I need the on the fly dimensioning just like the orthograpic wall function.
So you mean angled in Plan?
If so, the temporary dimensions are working for me.
I've attached screen shots of the issue I am seeing. Notice that the door in the horizontal wall the temporary dimensions show up but the on in the toilet wall only shows it is selected.
Can you select "Activate Dimensions" on the toolbar when the door in the angled wall is selected?
While using the Aligned Dimension tool, you can hover the cursor over the intersection of the faces of the angled Wall and another Wall, then hit Tab until the intersection point is highlighted (see image below). From there, you can then click on the center plane of the door and the opposite edge of the face of the Wall without trouble. You cannot select the intersection of the Wall center lines.
Sort of. When the door is selected and the dimension is invoiked it only recognizes the jambs of the door. No wall points are available to snap to. I added other walls at differnt angles within this drawing and they functioned properly but none (30+) of the angled walls allow the exact placement of doors or dimensions.
