How to flip the direction of dimension constrains in “block table”,

How to flip the direction of dimension constrains in “block table”,

 

In the screenshot below, the default direction of dimensions constrains are given in the direction of digitizing (by design)

How this direction might be flipped?

 

For example, in the ArcGIS software, one can see the direction of digitizing as well as flipping it

Thank you

If they perform as Dynamic Parameters do you will need to erase and recreate.

With Dynamic Parameters always move the mouse the direction you want the geometry to move when clicking.

Dynamic Parameters have an "x" at the begnining of the Parameter and a "+" where it ends.

I suspect Dimension Constraints are the same.

 

(wish I could test.)

I haven't tried this with blocks, but do you have a Fixed constraint at the point that you don't want to move?

Many thanks Charles for the help.

 

As you have indicated, the direction of the dimension constrains is controlled by the way we start picking the points of the dimension itself. It is defined from the first point and directed toward the second point
