dimensioning to Z shape implied intersections

Looked through the help and found nothing, then did a search here and found nothing.

I am needing to put a horzontal dimension from the implied intersections of a "Z" shape.

In the attached screen shot, I have a question mark at the dimension I'm needing.

I have tried the RMB/Intersection in different ways, but none giving me the dimension

I'm needing.

How do I go about getting this dimension?

Thank you very much for your help.
